We are stoked to present renowned indigenous Redfern artist Blak Douglas in his first outing with Work-Shop.
The workshop will begin with two drawing activities including his noted 'introduction to the yidaki' (didjeridoo). An auditory drawing exercise whereby participants 'draw the sounds' onto paper.
Next the class will engage in a detailed presentation covering emergence into art and some of the more notable accolades. This is designed to outline where Aboriginal art has arrived today, noting distinct comparisons to "traditional" v's contemporary, also touching on some key players in modern art current. This is a highly politicised and somewhat controversial presentation comprising images and philosophies that may cause offence to the (ahem...) 'light hearted'.
Participants will then be asked to design an 'ANTI' logo. Bright, bold, beautiful or simply straight to the point 'Blak & Right'. A symbol of change that the artist may one day evolve into their own T-shirt, badge, fridge magnet of stencil.
Finally, we'll engage in an exercise titled 'Sole brotha's & sista's'. Using participants own shoe we design a sole with a 'POP' flavour and one which carries a specific message of commentary of change.
