Salote Tawale’s art is all about identity and her personal experience of race, class and ethnicity as an Indigenous Fijian woman growing up in suburban Australia.

The Fijian born contemporary artist has now been awarded the NSW Government’s inaugural Visual Artist Fellowship for 2017.

The fellowship includes $30,000, an acquisitive Artbank commission up to $20,000 and a residency at a NSW regional gallery.
