Indigenous Australian Artist: Nathan Patterson
Nathan is a proud Wagiman man from Pine Creek, Northern Territory and is currently living on the Surf Coast in Victoria.
Born from the ashes of fire, the Phoenix represents the South East Melbourne Phoenix basketball team and symbolises determination and resilience. This painting also pays respect to Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islanders, who rise against the odds to become elite professional basketball players and represent their Country. Depicted around the rising Phoenix are men and women gathered together, symbolising the hard work and determination to pursue their dreams. They are role models for the next generation of Australian basketball superstars.
