Queer Indigenous artist Alexavier Sigurdur is Wyndham’s young person of the month for November.
Alexavier uses is perspective as a young Indigenous man from the
Jardwadjali traditional lands to create art that explores and raises awareness of gender and sexuality.
An example of this is his art work titled,‘Tchingal’s Eye,’ named after the emu from the Gariwerd (Grampians) creation story.
Tchingal’s Eye was recently selected as part of Wyndham Youth Services, 2022 Q Art Project and featured in the 2022 Q Art Book publication and was on display at Point
Cook Community Learning Centre and the Youth Resource Centre is Hoppers
Outgoing Wyndham mayor Cr Susan McIntyre congratulated Alexander for using art to give voice to those less heard and to support and represent
them in the Wyndham community.
“Wyndham thanks Alexavier for the positive contribution he has made through his artistic expression,” Cr McIntyre said.
“Alexavier is inspiring and provides a platform for those less heard and encourages
inclusivity and acceptance.”
Alexavier receives a $300 gift voucher of his choice and other prizes for winning the monthly award.
