Kamahi Djordon King

Due to a full schedule, Kamahi will not be taking on any future bookings for his Artists on Tour workshop in 2017.

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.
