Place of Birth: Kadavu, Fiji
William Camakau was born in Kadavu, Fiji in 1990.
From 2011 to 2013 he was an artist at the Oceania Centre for Arts, Culture and Pacific Studies (OCAC-PS) at the University of the South Pacific (USP) during which time he participated in their Beqa Island Climate Change Workshop. He made artworks which were exhibited in their CCC climate change Exhibition and submitted work in other exhibitions.
During this period of time he also performed the traditional Meke dance with the Oceania Dance company and assisted with painting of backdrops for performances and generally was involved in many of the activities at the Oceania Centre.
William was chosen to submit work for the Communicable Diseases Exhibition (a Fiji Government’s awareness campaign) at Fiji National University (FNU).
In mid 2018 to January 2019 he returned and worked alongside Lingikoni Vaka’uta on three large mural projects at USP that included the Library and the ICT Theatre, during which time Lingikoni referenced that William proved he could run projects independently from concept creation proposal writing to leadership role in managing a project.
He now works independently as an artist, passionate as he is of painting.
