With its vibrant colours and distinct features, the Australian galah was a very eye catching piece of art to connect with. It made me think about my childhood, growing up in a part of Australia where galahs are so prevalent in the local bush. For eating crop seeds, popular with local farmers though, they were not! I’m really impressed by the colour palette of the galah and the blue background really makes it pop. The feathers on the head of the galah make me think of native American headpieces and I wonder if there is a connection the artist was trying to make. This piece of art makes me feel happy and think about a galah that looks like it has a cheeky and fun personality!
