What is Flash Minky?
Flash Minky works with a variety of West Australian Indigenous artists, to create bespoke soft furnishings. We work to support local economies by facilitating new income streams for artist.
We select the freshest and best artists for you, leading you on a journey into the stories and ideas of Western Australian artists and creatives.
Our products reflect the diversity and geographical drama of arts and culture across Western Australia. From the ocean, to the rivers, to the desert; this is a state like no other.
Flash Minky curates a part of this states story into your home. Woven from recycled cotton in the USA, the artist takes 25% of the sale price which is 100% of the net profit.
Flash Minky hopes you collect and engage with our artists and love their work as much as we do!
Who is Flash Minky?
For over 14 years Founder, Emilia Galatis, has worked with Western Australian artists across the state as a curator, art consultant, cultural producer and Indigenous arts development specialist. Passionate about the unwritten histories that exist in Indigenous Australian art, she created Flash Minky to start sharing these stories in your own home.
Starting in commercial galleries in Fremantle, Emilia went on to manage leading West Australian art centre, Warakurna Artists Aboriginal Corporation located in the remote Ngaanyatjarra lands. Her recent experience is focussed on identifying and securing markets for Aboriginal artists, regularly working in multiple geographic regions. As a curator, she seeks to question the norm with recent projects including John Prince Siddon’s solo exhibition with Fremantle Art Centre in 2020 and two shows in the USA for the Fitzroy Crossing artists of Mangkaja Art Centre.
Flash Minky is an extension of this work growing organically out of many conversations, cups of tea and aesthetic excellence. Flash Minky offers commercial diversification to artists and strives to share their work with new audiences.
