Rohin Kickett is a Noongar artist from the Ballardong region. Rohin’s artworks are inspired by his family stories of strength and survival, along with his own personal experiences growing up in Perth. Born within 50km of where his family first made contact with settlers, his connection to the Ballardong region runs deep within his family.
Through painting and photography, Rohin’s residency aims to explore and document the devastated state of the lakes and river systems that were once vital life sources for his people in the Ballardong region. Rohin will endeavour to preserve the image of these sights before they are completely destroyed.
Rohin has exhibited in various group exhibitions, including Revealed at the Fremantle Arts Centre and the Raw Artists Perth in North Perth. His work has been exhibited in a range of Western Australian galleries such as the Yonga Boodja Aboriginal Art Gallery, Maalianup Aboriginal Gallery and Kings Park Aboriginal Gallery.
Currently, Rohin is studying a Bachelor of Fine Arts at Curtin University.
Rohin Kickett’s work is featured in Danjoo - Interwoven 16 February - 6 April.
