Josh Muir is a proud Yorta Yorta/ Gunditjmara man who holds his culture strong and close to his heart; it gives him his voice and his identity. Muir’s artworks echo his culture in a contemporary setting, and his practice reflects his journey. 

Using bright colours and bold lines, he often draws together historical events and stories and presents them alongside current narratives in a distinctive graphic style.  

Muir held his debut exhibition Don’t Spit the Dummy in 2013 at the Koorie Heritage Trust. In 2016, Muir was commissioned as a major project artist by White Night Melbourne, and projected his work Still Here on the façade of the National Gallery of Victoria. In 2017, Muir designed Richmond Football Club’s Guernsey for ‘Dreamtime at the G’ and produced Murrunghurk, a Melbourne Art Tram work as part of Melbourne Festival. 

Muir has won numerous awards, including the Telstra National Indigenous and Torres Strait Islander Art Award – Youth and the Hutchinson Scholarship. His work has been acquired by the Koorie Heritage Trust, National Gallery of Australia, Museum and Art Gallery of the Northern Territory, National Gallery of Victoria and by private collectors.

Josh Muir's work was part of the Yarra City Arts Peel Street Park Projection Program, from 28 May - 01 July, 2019.
