My name is Layne Dhu-Dickie, I’m a comic book artist from South Hedland.
Born in 2004, Layne is one of the youngest artists at Spinifex Hill Studio. He is the creator of a comic book series featuring the fictional superhero Captain Hedland. In 2017 Layne became the youngest artist to ever feature in Fremantle Arts Centre’s Revealed Exhibition: New and Emerging WA Aboriginal Artists, and in 2019 he became the youngest artist showcased at the Art Gallery of South Australia’s Tarnanthi.
Layne won Best Work by an Artist Under 25 at the 2017 Hedland Art Awards. His work has been collected by the Art Gallery of South Australia and the Janet Holmes à Court Collection.
As well as being an artist, Layne is a Studio Assistant at Spinifex Hill Studio.
