Alkina Edwards is a proud Yorta Yorta, Wemba Wemba, Muthi Muthi and Wiradjuri woman.
You won’t be able to miss Alkina’s huge artwork—Yapameyepuka (Together)—adorning the Melbourne Visitor Booth in Bourke Street Mall, viewable 24/7.
A digital finger artist and designer, Alkina’s works are about self expression, self-determination, identity, sharing stories, culture, family and love.
Surrounded by family who are heavily involved in community, mob and culture, Alkina was drawn to the beauty of art from a young age as a way to express emotions, tell your truth, stories and history. Her artworks combine modern technology with traditional techniques.
