Alex Mendelssohn is a renowned outback artist, whose work hangs in galleries and private collections around the world. He has been a resident of Andamooka for over 60 years and is the great great grandson of Felix Mendelssohn. We were lucky enough to be given a private and very theatrical art class. 

“Where on earth you got places like Andamooka left now? Free...whatever you want to bloody do or go wherever you want to bloody go. Free from all the bands and chains... It's a magnificent feeling. ” A. Mendelssohn, ABC Broadcast, 2014
