Award-winning teenage artist Ethyn Amat will be exhibiting his work on Wednesday at Chamber House in Bunbury.
The 19-year-old Indigenous man, who has been diagnosed with autism and is non-verbal, is set to have some of his pieces on show at the Bunbury Geographe Chamber of Commerce and Industry on Wednesday from 5 to 6:30 pm.
Ethyn’s Extra-Ordinary Art — the teenager’s micro-enterprise — began its journey in January 2020.
Ethyn sold his first work in May 2020 and he has since won awards across the South West, including Collie, Donnybrook and Busselton, with his talent being recognised around Australia.
The teenager’s paintings are known for their bold and unique colour combinations which are influenced by his moods at the time of creation.
The BGCCI said Ethyn’s work had been exhibited at Chamber House throughout the month of August and it had brightened up the space.
The Chamber said it was proud to be supporting local creatives in the South West.
“Art and culture play a key role in the vibrancy of our great region, and it is fantastic to see so many artists like Ethyn sharing their talents with the local community,” the Chamber said.
“This is a great opportunity to network with fellow BGCCI Partners, members of the executive committee and special guests at this exclusive, invitation only event.
“We have limited numbers, so please register as soon as possible so you don’t miss out.”
