At the age of 16, Kallum moved to Freshwater Cove where he became interested in painting. He began life there working as a tour guide through the sacred sites. Here, his grandfather Donny Woolagoodja taught him everything about the Wandjina, his people, his culture and art. The cultural and artistic knowledge that Kallum gained over time helped him develop his own unique style that encompassed painting the three Wandjinas along with Dumbi the owl. Not only is Kallum a talented artist, he is also a singer songwriter for The Krui3ers. And is a master totem maker for the Junba at Mowanjum Festival. He often paints while travelling up the coast and writes lyrics and music that explore his culture, history and Country.
