Kamahi’s artistic practices sit across visual arts, acting and singing. Born in Katherine, Northern Territory, Kamahi began painting and sketching at a young age, guided by his grandfather, a member of the Gurindji tribe, who was both a teacher and a mentor to young Kamahi. His grandfather told him stories about the desert and as a result, Kamahi’s work is greatly influenced by his grandfather’s teaching. Kamahi successfully entwines his own unique style and images with other art styles taken from many locations and experiences.
Workshop: visual arts with acrylics and latex for young people
Kamahi’s workshop will provide an introduction to unique visual arts mediums through a range of experiments. Participants will gain an insight into how they can manipulate these mediums to create work, before focusing on a solo piece exploring in particular, the use of masking to articulate their story.
