Richard Bell
Born 1953 in Charleville hospital from the Kooma Kamilaroi, Jiman, Goreng Goreng people.

"It's my job as an artist to test people's resolve, to provoke thought and that's what I do, I provoke thought and discussion" 

"White culture took away my tribal language and in return gave me a language that, on a social level, doesn't work."
