Daniel Walbidi is an established artist from the small coastal community Bidyadanga, from where he has painted since he was 16. A documentary was made about his work and the story of his people called Desert Heart, which screened on ABC. Daniel was named among the Top 50 of Australia's Most Collectable Artists in Australian Art Collector for 2011.
Daniel hopes the Desert River Sea: Kimberley Art Then & Now initiative will help him develop new ways to share his artwork with the world; “I want to learn about using the internet for exhibitions and networking.”
Daniel attended the 2013 Emerging Leaders Symposium in Perth.
