ARTISTS
Kidogo Art Institute

Throughout the park grounds of Port Coogee indigenous artworks have been installed. The original works were produced on canvas and later photographed, turned into digital graphic files, and digitally printed on glass. The glass is constantly exposed to sunlight, which concerned the artist as they wanted to ensure the longevity of their art. Cooling Brothers provided the Kidogo artists the solution, digital printing on glass with ceramic inks.  Cooling Brother’s explained, “the durability of the color in the external application is unrivalled by any other decorative printed glass process.” As for the colors the Director of Kidogo said, “The color work is very beautiful and the detail achieved is so impressive to see up close.”
