From his home in Cairns, Arone Meeks created works of art that speak to us of cross cultural interaction, relationships, gender, traditional and modern spirituality and his environment. Meeks, of the tribal group Ku Ku Imidiji, grew up in Laura, and has made extensive accomplishments achieved in study, residencies, commissions, community arts, and public art attribute to an outstanding career to date, reflecting his seemingly endless passion and determination for studio practice and teaching.

His works are testament not only to his skills and talents as a painter, sculptor, and printmaker, but also to his wonderful sense for colour and design that allows his work to shine.
