Amok Island (born Amsterdam, 1983) is an artist based in Perth, Western Australia.
After growing up and more than a decade of painting walls in the heart of Amsterdam, his love for everything tropical saw him travelling across Asia before settling in Perth, Western Australia in 2009.
Obsessed with marine life, you can find Amok Island's recognisable stylised sea creatures painted on canvas and walls around the world. Amok Island hand prints his own screen prints, producing the ongoing 'Animals of Australia' series.
In early 2013 Amok Island created large concrete letter sculptures that were submerged in various marine environments around Western Australia. The process of marine organisms slowly taking over was photographed and filmed at regular intervals over the course of a year.
In January 2014 Amsterdam's renowned modern art museum Stedelijk Museum and Kuvva featured Amok Island's work for 'Kuvva x Stedelijk Presents'.
Amok Island has exhibited his work extensively in gallery spaces throughout Western Australia, in Amsterdam, and recently in a solo exhibition in Tokyo.
Re.Discover is an annual street art festival created to showcase established & emerging Australian & International artists through the painting & exhibiting of exterior murals through the streets of the Bunbury’s CBD.
