Ron Hurley was born in 1946 into the Goreng Goreng and Mununjali peoples of south-east Queensland. He began using his formal Western art education to create art works that highlighted a contemporary Aboriginal existence and politics, and led the development of the urban Indigenous art movement with contemporaries such as Trevor Nickolls and Lin Onus.
