Zachary is an award-winning artist, born and raised in Wollongong Australia. Growing up in Wollongong (Dharawal Country), he has always been surrounded by the water and has always been involved with water-based activities.

Zac’s art has commonly been called unique and often an eye-catching perspective of contemporary Indigenous culture blended with surf culture, for all to enjoy. In a short time, Zac has gained worldwide recognition for his Indigenous artworks with works being shipped all over the world to America, Japan, Canada, England, Spain and throughout Australia, just to name a few countries. His artworks have been exhibited in a range of solo and group exhibitions and viewed by thousands from all over the world. Zac strives to create artworks that are of the highest quality, representing his passion for surfing in conjunction with his Indigenous background to ultimately showcase an artistic flare. His ambition is to create and develop works, which are engaging and aesthetically appealing, whilst allow him to grow artistically and professionally.
