Story:

Australian Indigenous culture is well known for its nomadic lifestyle. Tarisse often reflects on the fact that her ancestors would constantly move from one campsite to another to find a better food & water source and for better shelter to suit the seasonal conditions.

Tarisse King

In Adelaide South Australia, Tarisse King was born on September 4th 1986. She is older sister to artist Sarrita King and daughter of renowned influential indigenous artist, the late William King Jungala. Tarisse grew up in the raw and confronting landscapes around Darwin in Australia’s Northern Territory.  They were the influences she couldn’t ignore and coupled with the guiding insights provided by her father and his people, she saw the importance of art and representing our grand and wonderful country and its spirit so that all can ‘see’ where we live. The journeys between Katherine where her father lived, and Darwin were long, arduous, isolated, dusty and simultaneously beautiful. 

At the age of 16 Tarisse moved to Adelaide where she began to paint – her ideas, influences, experiences, history and culture combined to produce in her a style that was not only illustrative of ancient culture but demonstrative of a contemporary hopefulness.
