Adnate is one of street art's most influential big wall painters. His monumental works portraying Indigenous children have captivated viewers around the world.

Beyond the clear narrative, his style (technically based on the Italian Renaissance painting technique chiaroscuro, utilising acrylic and spray paint) creates a metasense of space and place—the harsh yet warm Australian desert. Adnate replicates the Australian landscape in the old eyes of the young child; through generations the young Indigenous eye has adapted the ‘wrinkle’ to successfully manage the harsh light of the Australian desert.
