Linett Kamala

Artists

Linett Kamala is an interdisciplinary artist, educator and carnivalist born in London, United Kingdom, who works across a range of media including paintings, installation, murals and DJ soundscapes.

Deeply rooted in community empowerment, Linett’s socially engaged creative practice ranges from mentoring emerging creatives to taking up space through festival culture as she draws inspiration from oral histories, carnivals of the diaspora and Jamaican culture.

Often referring to her monochrome expressive text-based art pieces as ‘freestyle calligraffiti’, Kamala’s first piece of street artwork dates to the early 1970s when as a child she painted a mural on the front of a youth club building in Kensal Green, London.

Linett graduated from University of the Arts London (London College of Communications) and University College London (Institute of Education) and is the Founding Director of Lin Kam Art. Through outreach art projects Lin Kam Art aims to enrich lives through residencies, workshops, events and programmes.
