Dino Wilson is an emerging artist at Jilamara Arts and Craft Association, where he began painting in 2017. In just three years, he has foregrounded a promising painting career with recognition by major galleries and institutions across the country.

Having previously lived in Wurrumiyanga (Bathurst Island), he worked for many years at the Sport and Recreation Centre. In 2016, he moved to Milikapiti on Melville Island to live with his mother Carol Black. Dino’s mother painted at Jilamara and soon after moving he decided to become a member and start making work himself.

Since starting to work at the art centre, Dino has been in many group exhibitions around the country and his work has gained attention internationally. In 2020, he has been working toward his two inaugural solo exhibitions, the first in Darwin at Outstation and the second in Melbourne at Vivien Anderson Gallery, St Kilda.
