Patrick Mung Mung is a senior artist at Warmun Art Centre and an elder at Warmun Community in the East Kimberley. Like his late father, George Mung Mung (c.1921–1991), Patrick is a strong cross-cultural communicator. In 1991, following his father's death, it fell to Mung Mung to accompany his father’s carving Mary of Warmun to Canberra for the exhibition Aboriginal Art and Spirituality at the High Court of Australia. This occasion marked the beginning of a journey for Mung Mung, which was to see him take on his father’s role of senior artist, law and culture man. Patrick Mung Mung was instrumental in establishing the artist-and-community-owned art centre at Warmun in 1998. Mung Mung has held many solo and group exhibitions, including several exhibitions in Germany.
