Blak Douglas

Born Adam Douglas Hill to an Aboriginal father of the Dhungatti People and an Irish-Australian mother, Blak Douglas is trained in illustration and photography, and became a self–taught painter. His artistic style is influenced by the study of graphic design and his focus on social justice. He is the winner of the 2017 Kilgour Prize, the 2021 STILL: National Still Life Award and 2022 Archibald Prize. Douglas is also a classically trained didgeridoo player, and has performed nationally and internationally, including at the Deadly Awards, the Rugby World Cup opening ceremony, Yabun Festival and the Welcome for Nelson Mandela.
