Eddie Janama Kitchen 


Eddie was born in Darwin, and comes from a large family of eight sisters and two brothers.  Eddie's extended family live in the remote communities of Daguragu, Kalkarindji, Pidgeon Hill and Alice Springs in the Northern Territory.

Eddie's mother, Nellie Numbajina Kelly was born at Brocks Creek. His grandmother,  Elsey Numbija was born at Cattle Creek. Both were removed by Government authorities (Stolen Generation) to Darwin in about 1924.

The Wave Hill area is famous in Australia's history for the 'Walk off' in 1966, where Aboriginal stockmen walked off in protest for better working conditions, better pay and the struggle for land rights.  The "Walk Off" is recognised as the first major fight for Aboriginal land rights in Australia.


Eddie's artwork hang in many galleries and personal collections around Australia and Overseas.  Permanent exhibitions in the United States are with:

Donald Hahn Collection - Florida

University of Miami - Florida

Kelton Foundation - Florida

Eddie has recently had success in Europe with exhibitions and sales to major galleries and buyers seeking his art.

Eddie has been painting since 1982 and paints Goanna, Snake, Bush Tucker, Bush Animals, Fire and Underground Water.
