See WA through a different lens

People of Perth Artist Exhibition

Forrest Chase is showcasing the magnificence of life in WA with a NEW interactive art exhibition that celebrates local talent!

The ‘People of Perth’ exhibition features four display windows that depict Western Australia through the eyes of four local creative artists.

Each artwork illustrates the unique personal experience of each artist, including:

  • J.D. Penangke: An Indigenous artist who has created a mural piece that captures how the traditional Indigenous pathways have become main roads in Perth’s CBD
  • Slapnukl: A 10-year-old skateboarder and illustrator who works closely with his twin to interpret urban street art culture, with an anime twist.
  • Kathy Bierma: A multi-faceted artist who highlights different elements of our world-famous ocean through neon lighting features.
  • Joshua Diong: A landscape photographer who scours the state far and wide to capture everything from the bright colours of northern WA, to the deep hues of the South-West through the lens of his camera.
