Profile

Lexodious K.P Dadd is a proud Senior Darug man from the Cannemegal clan of the Sydney area. He has recently joined the team at Warawara as the male Elder in residence. In his role, Uncle Lex provides pastrol support to Indigenous students at Macquarie University.  He is accepted in his community as being a good role model and mentor.

Lexodious sits on various committees and organisations which promotes cultural awareness and self-determination.  He has been part of many exhibitions that has showcased his artworks against child abuse and violence against women.

A patriot of an organisation called 'Hands on Health,' Lexodious' canvas paintings are displayed both overseas and in Australia.  He also belongs to an organisation called Together for Humanity in which he conducts art workshops, demonstrating continuation of culture and inclusivity through his artwork.

An intriguing story teller, Lexodious uses his traditional tools and bush craft to re-create the past and the dream time. Through this medium he is able to convey his message of how to be a humble, respectful and a responsible role model.

Lexodious also promotes in his artwork the importance of looking after country (Mother Earth) and that it is all our responsibility to look after her.  His recent exhibition was at the Blue Mountains Cultural Centre promoting his traditional tool making and bush craft.
