Billyara is a respected artist from the Wiradjuri tribe. The name Billyara comes from the artist's totem, an eagle, which stems from his connection with the land. He has been painting Aboriginal art for almost 30 years and teaches these traditions to younger generations. His artwork is a mix of traditional and contemporary Aboriginal art with a Western influence. He has exhibited extensively, and has sold his paintings internationally. Through a relationship with Modern Teaching Aids, Billyara hopes to introduce contemporary Aboriginal art to young children in fun and engaging ways.
