Clinton Naina, a descendant of the Gua Gua and Meriam Mer peoples, is an urban indigenous multi-disciplinary artist, whose practice includes painting, photography, printmaking, installation and performance art. His works engage with a broad spectrum of indigenous issues in a way which was described as ‘pointed and strong but poignant and witty’.

The artist’s works have been included in a number of important survey exhibitions of Australian contemporary indigenous art, and have been acquired by the National Gallery of Australia, National Gallery of Victoria, numerous state, regional, and university collections, as well as notable corporate and private collections across Australia and abroad.

The artist is represented by Gallerysmith in Melbourne and Art Atrium in Sydney.

‘I Look at the Skies’ comes from a powerful body of work, where Naina, by utilising an ordinary household bleach, engages in a debate about the effects of the Western culture on Australia’s indigenous society. Despite the spontaneity Naina's gesture, his work achieves compositional cohesion and narrative power. Works by Clinton Naina are an important addition to collections of contemporary and indigenous Australian art.
