This week on We, the City Blue speaks with artist Blak Douglas. A proud Dhungatti man, Blak Douglas is a contemporary artist who works across painting, installation and sculpture. He won the converted Archibald prize in 2022 with his portrait of Karla Dickens, which was the first time an Aboriginal woman was the subject of a winning portrait. His work explores political and social injustice through bright colours, iconic figures and witty sardonic titles. It has captivated audiences around the world for decades. Blak talks about pushing the boundaries in the art world and the lessons he’s learned along the way.
