He has traveled extensively in PNG and Australia, where he spent years working with Australian Aboriginal artists and theater groups. As a traditional storyteller, he employs a rich iconography of line, pattern, color and dots in his canvas works to portray the animist cosmology that connects him to ancestral culture and land.
