About the Artwork
Darwin has the youngest median age out of all the capital cities in Australia and is one of the most multicultural places you can find. This image of Darwin local Artia Ratahi with Indigenous and Maori Heritage represents the diverse backgrounds of many locals.
Darwin is Young, Vibrant and full of life. The colours in the background represent the colours of the Top End soil and the alluring crystal blue waters along with the pinks and purples you can only find in our stunning Top End sunsets.
