Dylan Mooney is an Indigenous artist of Aboriginal (Yuwi), Torres Strait Islander and South Sea Islander heritage. He is a Mackay-born artist who graduated from the Queensland College of Art’s CAIA (Contemporary Australian Indigenous Art) program in 2020. His two paths of creation are fine art, including drawing and printmaking; and graphic design, in which Mooney’s digital posters celebrate Indigeneity and queer identity. He has exhibited his work in Queensland and South Australia, with mural commissions across several regional Queensland locations including Mackay. In 2019 he was commissioned to produce work for the State Library of Queensland’s ‘Plantation Voices: Australian South Sea Islanders’ and ‘Spoken: Celebrating Queensland Languages’. Mooney was Artspace Mackay’s invited artist-in-residence, commissioned to produce a temporary mural for ‘The Wall’ program in February 2021, and will showcase 'Queer, Blak & Here' with a major exhibition of fellow Australian South Sea Islander artist Jasmine Togo-Brisby in January 2022.
