Larry Santana’s art still rocks 40 years on!

Larry Santana’s work has always fascinated me. He captures the richness of Papua New Guinea whilst giving the viewer only a tiny glimpse, a window, into his super creative mind. Mr. Santana has been an influential force in PNG art since the 1980s. While he has been away from the limelight, he has always been there. He loves his art. I guess like many artists, he allows the world to see only a tiny part that is accepted, appreciated and understood by the rest of us ordinary folk.

I hope to speak to Mr. Santana soon. I have always wanted to have a good long sit down. That has not happened yet. But he gave me permission to share some of his work on My Land | My Country which I really appreciate!
