Throughout my life I have had the privilege to travel and learn from other nations
about their country and their waterways, my paintings allow me to give an insight into our beautiful
culture while also providing me the ability to heal my spirit through my connection to my old people.
I believe the path that I am on was planned for me long ago by my ancestors and I intend follow
their guidance and strive to become a strong advocate for my people.
My name is Aaron (DHURIL) Blades, I am a
proud Mandandanji man from the Balonne river
in South Western Queensland, I have been
painting since I was 14 years old and over that
time I have utilised my paintings to tell my
stories and heal.
Alot of my influence comes from my life experiences and time spent on my Grandmothers country, I then proceed to capture those times through my art and tell the story of my journey.
