Proud Wagiman Man living in Victoria


Nathan Patterson is a proud Wagiman Man living in on the south coast of Victoria. His mother’s people are from Pine Creek, near the Daly River Region in the Northern Territory, where the Wagiman clan are the traditional landowners.

Nathan burst onto the scene around four years ago with his ever-evolving Modern Aboriginal Art. He has been commissioned for numerous large scale mural projects as well as featuring on 4 AFL Indigenous Guernsey’s.

His art is a mixture of contemporary designs using traditional techniques that incorporate the dreamtime stories of his people and of the land he was born on. He continues to tell these stories through his art. Nathan strives to push the boundaries of contemporary aboriginal art through the use of vibrant colours which his work is becoming well known for.

Nathan’s artwork is inspired by his passion for Australian native wildlife and landscape and especially loves painting birds, including the Red-Tailed Cockatoo and Wedge Tailed Eagles.
