First Nations artists to buy from: our recommendations.


It’s always a good time to show your support and become an ally for the native community (if you aren’t already). But there’s no better time to celebrate First Nations excellence than during NAIDOC Week!

The week (July 3 – July 10) is about celebrating and recognizing the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. And a major aspect of Aboriginal culture is art.

The Aboriginal arts industry has been a victim of exploitation and appropriation for years. So remember when buying – seek to ethically buy authentic works by First Nations artists. As the Indigenous Art Code notes, this not only ensures respect for the world’s oldest living culture, but ensures that the artists themselves are paid and treated fairly. Win/win!

So, to give you some practical inspiration, we’ve rounded up eight First Nations artists that you can buy any time of the year.

And trust us when we say you’ll be looking to buy or order a piece when you watch the stellar talent on display.

Watch: Children from Indigenous communities in the Kimberley, Western Australia, tell us what they want. The story continues below.

Rachael Sarra is a multidisciplinary artist, designer and businesswoman. As a contemporary Métis First Nations artist from Goreng Goreng country, Rachael uses art as a powerful tool and outlet. Importantly, Rachael’s work often challenges and explores themes of society’s perception of what Indigenous art and identity are.

Her style is feminine, fun and engaging, but is heavily inspired by her heritage and her role as an Indigenous woman in a modern world.
