Kamina Walton is an artist, writer, critical thinker and Founder of Rising Arts Agency.
She is currently experimenting with a range of media to explore her personal relationship with grief. In the past year this has involved making a significant shift from working purely with photography and installation to embracing dance movement as a way of shifting her practice into a more performative space. In an earlier life she was a trapeze artist, risk-taking was her every day routine. Thirty years and she has an overwhelming urge to move, to stretch, to push boundaries, and discover ways of articulating loss, relationships, memory and vulnerability through her body.
Kamina gained a BA (Hons) in Film, Video and Photographic Arts at the Polytechnic of Central London in the early 1980s. It was the radical teaching around the politics of representation that has influenced the way she thinks and works ever since. In the mid-1990s she was awarded an MA in Design and Media Arts from the University of Westminster. In 2015 she graduated from the Extend Leadership Programme. She joined the Spike Island studio community in 2008.
