Kakare Hohora

Kakare Hohora is a 25-year-old Gumbaynggirr, Bundjalung and Birpai man from Kempsey, on the Mid North Coast of New South Wales. He comes from a family of artists and has had a passion for drawing since childhood. He excelled in visual arts at Macleay Valley Vocational College and since finishing school has continued to develop his art making skills and practice.

Kakare creates digital artworks using illustration software on an iPad to draw original, layered designs which often depict local sea creatures, bush animals and landscapes. He also paints on canvas and is an experienced printmaker and mural artist. His colourful, patterned artwork is often inspired by stories from his childhood and celebrates his strong connection to his family, his country and his culture.

Kakare has been working with the Coolamon Arts Hub since 2022 and in that time he’s created original artwork for gallery exhibitions and a public art installation, worked on private commissions and had his artwork licenced for merchandise and corporate branding.
