Jade Akamarre with cooking Bush Bananas on the fire.

D.O.B: 1993
LANGUAGE GROUP: Alyawarre/Anmatyerre
COMMUNITY: Utopia, NT

Jade Akamarre was born in 1993 in Adelaide and is the daughter of the internationally renowned and respected art dealer, Fred Torres. She is an emerging Aboriginal artist following the footsteps of her Grandmother Barbara Weir and Great Grandmother Minnie Pwerle. In 2015 Jade was the founder of this wonderful family business Pwerle Gallery. She and her younger sister Mariah have inherited all the talent of their famed family predecessors. 

 “South Australia’s most prominent, emerging Aboriginal artist, Jade Torres has launched her first exhibition for Pwerle Gallery in May 2018. Unlike any other art exhibition, Jade’s work will be flanked by no fewer than nine other notable Aboriginal artists who span four generations. At 28 years of age, Jade, born and bred in Adelaide has a dynasty of artistic ancestry and painting is in her blood. Her family, globally renowned Aboriginal artists Minnie Pwerle, Barbara Weir and Emily Kame Kngwarreye (to name a few) have played a huge role in her artistic style and the success of the business. 

Jade said “with majority of the artists being family members and stakeholders in the company, I feel family connection is the key factor to my gallery’s success. The artists and the community are our priority and that is why a percentage of every sale we make goes back into our Utopia Trust.”

It was only in April 2018 that Jade picked up the paint brush and started to produce artwork. Her dreaming is titled ‘Dreaming in my Grandmother’s Country’ which has been passed down to her by her Grandmother Barbara Weir. These paintings consist of loosely executed dots painted in linear patterns that resemble a carefully designed aerial view of her country ‘Atnwengerrp’. Artworks such as Jade’s ensures the continuation of an ancient and rich cultural heritage whilst acknowledging the close bond still retained by the artist to her country.

Having recently been featured in Elle Magazine and as one of Vogue’s Game Changers of 2018 alongside names such as Emma Watson and Margot Robbie, Jade was also named InDaily ’40 under 40′ finalist for 2021.
