Kylie Hall

Biography

Kylie Hall is an emerging artist, with a strong family background in the arts.

Coming from Galiwinku on Elcho Island, Kylie has a unique style different to that of many Western Arnhem Land artists working at Babbarra. Kylie depicts clan and ceremonial designs from her island home in her artworks, with strong line work in her screens and detailed abstract mark making in her linos being her signature style.

Kylie works competently across lino printing and screen printing, and has a strong connection with the designs she depicts.

“My grandfather on Elcho island taught me to paint a long time ago. He sat with me and showed me how. He was a big artist and a big ceremony man for us. He passed away long time ago”
