SWELL at Gold Coast Airport 2023 | Lil Dusty
Lil Dusty – Dion Parker
Lil Dusty is an infamous and well-loved character on the Gold Coast, created by local artist Dion Parker. This work is a selection and celebration of Lil Dusty in some of his many forms.
Lil Dusty has never liked being confined to a box. To be honest he’s not the most obedient dog around. I left these crates unattended for just a minute and this is what the cheeky little bugger’s got up to.
