On his tour of Australia playing to sold out concerts nationwide, Ed Sheeran engaged with local Elders, opening each concert with a Welcome to Country ceremony. Inspired by this show of respect, Luke Mallie got in contact with Ed and his team, who in turn invited Luke for a meet and greet. We presented the super talented musician with a selection of our NAIDOC products, along with two of Luke's paintings: 'Warrior Heart' and 'Nature Girl Spirit'. Not one to forget our fans, we also gave away a signed Ed Sheeran Nature Girl Spirit tee to a very lucky competition winner!
Warrior Heart - by Luke Mallie
"The painting is called Warrior Heart. It shows an aboriginal warrior in the heart of Australia, Uluru. It also shows the respect for Ed Sheeran and recognises his Warrior Heart for doing what he believes in and not caring what others think of him. While I was painting this piece, a hawk flew down and sat on top of the painting. I found out that the hawk represents, "being able to see clearly, being a visionary and flying to heights you've never reached before".- Luke Mallie
