Originally from Katherine, Gurindji visual and performing artist Kamahi King is internationally renowned for his stunning paintings. More recently Kamahi Djordon King has shifted his focus towards multimedia. With so many people needing verification that the artist has painted the painting, Kamahi films the creation process and it's played alongside the piece in the exhibition. Most of Kamahi's artwork is inspired by nature. He has also begun to make sculpture, and this will be the first exhibition of his collection titled Tanha and the camp dogs, a homage to his late fur baby with her distinct colouring.

Kamahi began sketching and painting at a young age, however he did not begin to paint on canvas until his twenties after pursuing a career in the performing arts. As well as acting in theatrical roles such as the Fool/Narrator of the critically acclaimed The Shadow King, an Aboriginal version of Shakespeare's King Lear, he also has an alter ego called Constantina Bush who will be performing cabaret at Park Lounge, Deep West Pride without Prejudice on Saturday 3 February 4 - 9pm at Kelly Park, Werribee. After moving around the country for most of his life Kamahi now lives in Katherine, Northern Territory.
