Ethan’s journey into the aboriginal art world began after he visited an exhibition in a Brisbane gallery and was immediately inspired by renown indigenous artist Ningura Napurrula Gibson. Ethan loved Ningura’s depiction of land and country. Ethan grew up around Longreach where his grandmother and the elders taught him much about their land, indigenous ways and culture.
