Explore a world of unique colour with Matisse Origins Range. Derivan is a company that believes in more than just selling paint and has a long association with creating eco-friendly processes and sponsoring Australian creatives. Try this range and see for yourself just how beautiful the essence of the Northern Territory can be. For many indigenous artists, a connection to the land is not only part of their creative spirit, but also their identity. Their natural and cultural landscape is composed of many different types of unique land and rock formations, all changing in response to the intensity of the harsh sunlight. Artists have always used these rocks to create pigments for both artworks and body adornment. The rich reds, yellow oxides and textured whites are all formulated from the immediate environment. These pigments are literally gifts from the earth and quickly became part of the history of indigenous visual expression. Stretching 700kms to the east of the Northern Territory’s capital of Darwin is Arnhem Land. It neighbours Kakadu National Park and is home to many indigenous Australians who have cared for this country for over 40,000 years. Some of the earliest forms of art in the world can be found in Arnhem Land and many Aboriginal artists in the Northern Territory continue to embody this creative spirit using both traditional and modern techniques. Yirrkala Aboriginal Community is approximately 15km from the townshipof Nhulunbuy, in Australia’s Northern Territory, and is home to a unique indigenous community owned art centre, The Buku-Larrnggay Mulka Centre. In consultation with the Buku-Larrnggay Mulka Centre, Derivan has created four acrylic paint colours using naturally sourced rock formations plentiful to the Arnhem Land region. The pigments were hand collected by artists working for the centre from age old
