Gordon Hookey (born 1961 Cloncurry) is an Australian aboriginal performer from the Waanyi people. He has a Bachelor of Fine Arts (1992) and lives in Brisbane, Australia. He is primarily known as a painter but his practice as well as involves sculpture, installation, drawing, photography, and to a lesser extent, animation.

Hookey is a core fanatic of the Brisbane-based Indigenous amassed proppaNOW.

Hookey has been exhibited in the Sydney Biennale with Paranoia Annoy Ya. He had an exhibition called Ruddock’s Wheel, which made fun of a comment by Philip Ruddock who said that aborigines had not used the wheel.
