Frank McLeod

With his tribal name of Guginy, meaning 'fruitbat', Frank is a Sydney based artist and professional cartoonist. Originally from Kempsey and a descendant of the Dunghutti tribe, Frank developed a love of painting and drawing from an early age. He pursued his interest, studying Aboriginal Art at Cairns TAFE and exhibits his highly stylized work at The Rainbow Serpent. In addition, he has exhibited at Boomali Gallery in Redfern. Much of his style is characterised by colourful, bold forms which lend impact to his native themes. Frank is a contributing cartoonist to Streetwize magazine, a national publication aimed at the Aboriginal youth market. The magazine deals with pertinent issues, including racism, drug and alcohol abuse and aim to raise kids' awareness of the solutions to these problems.
