Yuriyal Eric Bridgeman is a multi-disciplinary artist based in Australia and Papua New Guinea who graduated from the Queensland College of Art. He works in photographic portraiture, video, sculpture, installation, drawing, and painting. Bridgeman’s photographic and new media works can be positioned in social commentary and portraiture; his painting practice is strongly influenced by his connection to men’s practices of his tribe, Yuri Alaiku of the Simbu province of PNG, in the form of shield paintings. He co-founded the artist collective Haus Yuriyal (Jiwaka, PNG) with his family members, in which he serves the role as artist and facilitator of the group’s contemporary art projects.
