Stan Yarramunua started painting over 20 years ago. He began by selling paintings, didgeridoos and clap sticks at markets and galleries. This led him to building relationships and representing Victorian Aboriginal Artists. Over many years, Yarramunua worked in the desert and had the opportunity to build stronger relationships with Aboriginal Desert Artists, so he began representing those Aboriginal Artists in Melbourne too.
After years of doing markets and setting up and being part of exhibitions, it became apparent that he really needed a gallery to house and exhibit this fine artwork. And so in 2008, Yarramunua was proud to open among the first Aboriginal privately owned and managed galleries in the world, at 500 Collins St, in the heart of Melbourne 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 located at 149 Acland Street St Kilda.
Yarramunua has graced the stage of MCG, done several commissioned works for private companies and charities and continues to paint and represent artists in Art Yarramunua Gallery from across Australia.
