Featured in this iteration of The Studio is Tarnanthi artist John Prince Siddon. Prince is a Walmajarri artist who works with one of Australia’s most experimental art centres – Mangkaja Arts in Fitzroy Crossing in Western Australia.
Prince began painting in 2009 and he likes to paint on different surfaces - from boab nuts to bullock skulls. His work responds to both local and world events which he combines with the ancestral stories of his desert homeland.
Art lovers of all ages will create their own boab sculpture and cover it in designs inspired by the things that matter to them most. These designs may take their cue from the bold and psychedelic patterns made by John Prince Siddon.
The Studio is open weekdays during school term for a free facilitated and session, all materials provided.
