Rick Waters is an Australian of Aboriginal (Wiradjuri) descent. From the Cowra region.

 

In search of his indigenous heritage, he adopted the name Muliyan, meaning ‘Eagle.’ On waking from a powerful dream in which an image of an eagle and other symbols appeared to him, he drew the design and asked a tattoo artist to transfer it onto his back.

He has been painting for several years with many of his works in private collection nationally and overseas.
