Name: Troy Polly

Community: Kunawarritji


Troy grew up in Kunawarritji and has been painting with his grandmother Bugai and his great grandmothers Wompi and Nungabar since he has eight. When he was in school he worked with Jila Tony who taught them to make models of the community. Now Troy enjoys making his own models with found materials and telling the stories of Kunawarritji and his life. He also paints about things that he enjoys such as when Desert Feet visit which is a truck with a stage and a band set up that visit the remote communities developing musicians such and Troy.  He also paints his favorite characters from the video games that he plays out in Kunawarrtiji when he is not working for either the KJ rangers or the community and has some spare time.
