The Shire of Carnarvon is pleased to announce that Darryl Bellotti, a Malgana Yamatji man and accomplished artist and graphic designer, has been selected to bring his artistic talents to the forefront of the Skate Park mural as part of the Carnarvon Youth Precinct Revitalisation project.

With a diverse career spanning graphic design, film, photography, and youth engagement, Darryl brings a wealth of experience to the project. His notable contributions include designing coins for the Perth Mint, collaborating on films such as Alien Covenant and Red Dog True Blue, and actively participating in Youth Outreach and community engagement activities.

We eagerly anticipate the vibrant and meaningful artwork he will create for our youth."
