About KickArts

About KickArts

KickArts Shop

Located in the central business district of Cairns, in the Centre of Contemporary Arts, KickArts is a key destination for local and tourist visitors alike who wish to experience the vibrant contemporary visual culture of Tropical North Queensland. KickArts is dedicated to facilitating, presenting and promoting contemporary arts and extending the experience and cultural life of northern Australians and more than 2.2 million annual visitors to Cairns.

Located at the Cairns Centre of Contemporary Arts

Cairns Centre of Contemporary Arts

KickArts Contemporary Arts was founded in 1992 by artist Garry Andrews with the support of an artists' collective in Cairns. It was originally called Kick Arts Collective Inc., a name coined by Garry Andrews. After presenting regular exhibitions in the available venues of tropical north Queensland, KickArts established a permanent home at the Cairns Centre of Contemporary Arts in 2004, co-locating here with JUTE theatre Company. This era saw KickArts change its status from an artists' collective to a company limited by guarantee.

We are excited to showcase the work of Josiah Omeenyo from Lockhart River Art Centre as part of the IACA Member Profile Wall in the KickArts Shop!

Josiah Omeenyo is a senior painter from Lockhart River Art Centre with connections to the Umpila-Kanthanampu language group. An experienced song and dance man, Josiah began painting body markings used in ceremonies, to document the designs used in storytelling. His practice evolved to reflect his experiences of country particularly the coral reefs that are depicted through spectacular colour combinations. Josiah has exhibited both nationally and internationally and his work is featured in major institutional collections.

Join us in store to view the works until November 30 or take one home today!
