Kambarni is descended from the Nimunburr and Yawuru people of the Kimberley and the Ballardong Noongar people of the Perth region in Western Australia. He is an emerging illustrator who reflects the natural world with his intricate designs.
Using his artwork as a platform to share knowledge and educate others about Aboriginal culture, 25-year-old artist Kamsani (Kam) Bin-Salleh was selected as Western Australia’s Young Person of the Year during the annual awards ceremony.
As an Aboriginal man, Kam has had to overcome and challenge negative stereotypes that society often portrays on him. He uses his art to overcome this disadvantage, and as a way to express himself and bring stories of his people alive, telling stories of his descendants and highlighting the richness of Aboriginal culture.
