THE artist behind the memorial artwork about Aboriginal leader Yaburgurt revealed his background at Mandurah Baptist College.

Students Declan Turner and Ziggy Mc Carthy interviewed artist Peter Farmer about how the Yaburgurt artwork was designed and constructed.

The artwork will be erected near Mandurah Performing Arts Centre in May or June next year.

The interview will be placed on the City of Mandurah website and a follow-up video interview is planned.
