PAINTINGS created from mud, tea, coffee and grass are just some of the unusual items on display at Uxbridge Library until Friday.
The creator of the 44 paintings hope they will inspire others.
Aussie, 59, whose real name is James Dixon, has lived rough and uses a wheelchair but insists nothing will ever curb his creative talents.
Now living in West Drayton and supported by Hillingdon Council, he will be at the exhibition to meet people and chat about his paintings.
"Since the age of five I knew I was an artist.
"When it comes to art I have no limits; I can use anything," Aussie says.
"When I paint I listen to anything from Pink Floyd to Beethoven to clear my mind.
"I'm a good communicator and would like to teach, but not in the conventional sense; art is all about freedom."
Aussie was born in the UK but moved to Australia at the age of five. He has lived a full life, including a spell as a Butlins red coat and serving with the Royal Fusiliers.
He also has an IQ of 149. "My ultimate goal is to set up a school and teach art to young people," Aussie says.
