Fabian was born in Alice Springs, grew up in Ali Curing and has both Warumungu and Walpiri family connections. Fabian began sketching when he was about 10 years old inspired by his elder brother who was also a talented painter. Fabian is very passionate about his art and draws on various imagery, and influences from his life and travels. Educated in Ali Curang and Adelaide, Fabian has travelled to various Australian cities and towns but holds his country and culture very dear. He is the leader of the Tennant Creek men's painters and his work references both traditional and modern narratives and international iconography while exploring new mediums. He is a great mentor to younger artists, collaborates with other members of the Tennant Creek Brio and his works communicates across generations.
