Gerard Black is a proud Worimi man. Gerard grew up in Torquay and has a deep connection to Wadawurrung Country, where he has been nurtured and grown.

Gerard’s interest in art started at school, but he spent time as a builder and only later returned to his art roots to become an internationally recognised tattoo artist and more recently a fine artist. 

Gerard’s work features intricate, geometric dotwork inspired by his connection to the land and ocean of the Wadawurrung, ancient art techniques and his birthing country of Worimi. 

Gerard’s work will appear as a mural in the café of the Geelong Arts Centre Little Malop Street Redevelopment.
