Jock Mosquito


Jock Mosquito is a senior ochre artist of the East Kimberley, who was born at Nicholson Station around 1944. Jock Mosquito was involved with the Turkey Creek artists who developed the style of ochre painting from Warmun, that evolved from the ceremonial dance boards in the 1970s.

Jock Mosquito remained a committed community figure late into his life, and made his paintings alongside his other social duties. In 2005 Jock Mosquito had a stroke that forced him to adapt his painting style to a more minimal style, and his powerful ochre paintings from the following years were grand statements of his life’s journey.
