David Malangi was one of the most well-known artists from the community of Ramingining in Arnhem Land. He gained notoriety after having one of his artworks depicted on the Australian dollar bill, published without his permission. The ensuing debate and ultimately recognition led him to be known by many as Dollar Dave. He was also an extremely important ceremonial figure for the region, and his work is found in institutions around Australia and overseas.
