Adnate is an artist that realises his portraits in spray paint. He has moved past his roots in Street Art, utilising the medium to carry his realist style into the fine art realm.

Heavily influenced by the chiaroscuro of renaissance painters like Caravaggio, Adnate embraces portraiture like the masters of the XXI Century.

Adnate has always held a connection towards indigenous people of their native land, especially with Indigenous Australians.  He paints large scale murals in the main cities around Australia and the world, creating a statement of reclaiming the land that was always theirs.  He endeavours to capture the stories and emotions of each subject he paints, encouraging the audience to feel through their own experience.
