Ben Appleton with his authentic aboriginal plates

Ben Appleton signs his work “ BA’’. was born in Mt Isa and grew up in Brisbane, and is a descendant of the Yuggera tribe located between Brisbane and the Gold Coast (QLD). “I started drawing as soon as I could hold a pencil” says Ben. He signs his work “ BA’’.

Ben is able to combine his love for airbrushing to create an effective eye catching combination of medias, which distinguish him from other artists. His art takes on themes of hunting and gathering, and he finds himself drawing his inspiration mainly from the Australian landscape of flora and fauna. Ben hopes that he is able to please people with his art, and through this process has rediscovered his heritage.

Ben is one of many Indigenous Artists painting for Australian Authentic Dreamtime Art and continues to enjoy the exposure this gives him.

Australian Authentic Dreamtime Art feature products that are painted by genuine Aboriginal Artists, each with their own individual style and story.
