Stan ‘Yarra’ Yarramunua is a highly successful Melbourne artist, musician, businessman and charity worker.
Stan started painting more than 20 years ago. He then began selling paintings, didgeridoos and clap sticks at markets and galleries. The relationships he built through this led him to represent Victorian Aboriginal artists. Yarramunua also worked in the desert over several years and built strong relationships with Aboriginal desert artists, and began representing those artists in Melbourne too. In 2008, Yarramunua was proud to open among the first privately owned and managed Aboriginal galleries in the world, at 500 Collins St, in the heart of Melbourne’s CBD. Soon after, in 2011, he opened a country cousin gallery in Daylesford. In 2016, Yarramunua opened a gallery in the hip and busy heart of St. Kilda, at 149 Acland Street.
Yarramunua has graced the stage of the MCG and completed several commissioned works for private companies and charities. He continues to paint and represent artists from across Australia in Art Yarramunua Gallery.
