Edward Blitner was born in 1961 in the south of Arnhem land but lived for many years in the Roper River region which is near Katherine in the Northern Territory. He started painting when he was seven years old and lived in various regions during his younger years such as Katherine, Victoria River, Kununurra, Fitzroy Crossing and Broome whilst working as a farm-hand and stockman. His Grandfather used to paint on bark using natural ochres and passed down songs and dance styles to the younger generation watching. Edward paints in the traditional style of "Cross Hatch" also referred to as "rrarrk". The style he paints is his family's "Cross Hatch" design and is sacred to him and his family.
