Greg McAdam

Back to Parrtjima Curator & Artists

Greg McAdam painted Grass Seed in 2004. It is a dreaming story from his country Yamba, given to him by his uncle. With a thirst for cultural knowledge and information, Greg paints as a way to connect with his cultural being.

Born in Mparntwe (Alice Springs) in 1977, Greg’s parents sent him to Adelaide to be educated. There he developed a career in Australian Rules playing for SANFL and later the VFL and AFL.
