Kevin bynder - kevvybynders art

Kevin Bynder was born in Perth to Whadjuk-Yuet Nyungar Mother and a Widi-Badimia Yamatji Father.

Apart from the City of Vincent, Kevin has also been commissioned by over 30 sporting clubs to create their uniforms. Some clubs include the West Coast Eagles, Port Adelaide, Perth Scorchers, Fremantle Dockers, and the Perth Wildcats. Additionally, he has designed a $2 coin for the Perth Mint. Besides being an artist, Kevin has worked in schools, teaching Indigenous students from remote communities.

Kevin’s art is displayed on the City’s uniforms. It can be seen with the team at Beatty Park Leisure on their winter jackets and Swim School rashies, as well as our polo shirts worn by staff across the City.

The design shows both Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island people coming together to be as one on the Australian shore. The circles on the top and the bottom in the green, white and blue show some of the islands of the Torres Strait surrounded by the water. The Aboriginal colours in the middle represent all Indigenous people of Australia the traditional owners of the land. The 2 hands represent the generations of people who have passed through this land and leave their ancestral DNA behind for the future generation. Together both Torres Strait Islanders and Indigenous Australians keep their connection to the land.
