Zaachariaha Fielding Born 1991, in Port Augusta, Australia.

Fielding moved back to the community of Mimili, the ancestral country of his grandfather in the Anangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara (APY) Lands in 1998, a move that would be imperative to the artists creative practice. Well known in Australia and abroad as one half of electronic music duo ‘Electric Fields’, Zaachariaha Fielding comes from a strong family lineage of artists and storytellers. His energetic and visceral paintings exist as contemporary works whilst acknowledging and honouring the visual language of his culture.

“I was raised on desert country in the eastern Anangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara Lands and come from a long line of multi-disciplinary artists. I am compelled to make work that honours the visual language of my ancient culture.”

Currently based in South Australia, Fielding’s work has been recognised in major art awards, most notably as a finalist in the Ramsay Art Prize at Art Gallery of South Australia (2021) and the National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Art Awards at Museum and Art Gallery of Northern Territory (2021).
