Callum Docherty

Callum Docherty (b.1981) is an Tarntanya/Adelaide-based multidisciplinary artist who has predominantly worked and exhibited throughout New South Wales and South Australia.

His experimental approach includes working with a range of mediums such as drawing, painting, sculpture, photography, installation and more recently collaborating in performance-based, site-specific live works and sound art.
For Callum, the notions of reinvention and circularity are at the core of his creative arts practice, with a focus on incorporating abstraction to express personal narratives, new perspectives and responses to social issues.

Callum was awarded Major Prize Winner of the 2019 Gallery M Open Contemporary Art Prize for his work ‘Intermission’. He was a finalist in the 2019 4th Biennial RSASA Portrait Prize Exhibition and the 2017 Tatiara Art Prize. Since moving to Adelaide in 2017, Callum has also exhibited his work in solo and group exhibitions, along with festivals including the Adelaide Fringe and SALA festivals.
