Bindi Cole

Bindi Cole Chocka (b. 1975, Melbourne Australia) is an Australian artist, photographer, curator and writer. She is of Wathaurung and Aboriginal descent. In 2010 she graduated from Federation University with a Fine Arts degree and she holds a diploma in Applied Photography from the Northern Melbourne Institute of TAFE. She works with several media such as installations, video and text as well as photography and she is inspired by her own life and experiences in her works.
