For the next nine weeks you'll be able to visit the Western Plains Cultural Centre in Dubbo on the weekend and see one of Australia's best Aboriginal artists at work.

Lewis Burns is an internationally renowned painter and didgeridoo player.

You'll be able to ask him all the questions you have about Indigenous art, culture and music.

Lewis Burns grew up on the Talbragar Reserve in Dubbo before moving to town, and says he has been painting all his life.

“I’ve worked beside other traditional artists and I’ve learnt a lot, but over the years I’ve developed my own style.

“People always ask me how long I’ve been doing it for, and the real answer is 40,000 years.”
