Adam Gibson is a Sydney journalist, editor, writer, lyricist, musician and artist whose work covers music, songs, travel writing, spoken word storytelling, installation art, performance works, sculpting, video work, painting and photography… In artwork terms, his work is fundamentally “landscape-based”, being influenced by the land and travel and the sense of being “in” and/or part of different environments, and the stories of the people who inhabit such land, with Australian stories and language and vernacular turn of phrase being very important.
He has worked in various forms and roles in the Australian media for over 25 years, plus as a teacher, lecturer and facilitator.
He performs regularly solo and with his band The Ark-Ark Birds , who have just released their second album ‘Cities of Spinifex’, following their first album ‘Australia Restless’.
