A Bit About Brad Hore
Brad Hore is a two time Olympic and Commonwealth Boxer and the 23rd Indigenous Olympian turned Aboriginal Artist.
As an Aboriginal Dunghutti man, growing up in Sydney and the Sunshine Coast, he was always fighting something; an opponent, for Aboriginal Rights and even himself.
The loss of his Father and COvid-19 hit one after the next and threw him into the depths of grief and mental illness. Finding ways to cope, Brad came home with some paint and a canvas and started telling his story. In one short year his progression lead to a passion that so many wanted to share with him and he started creating specialised, commissioned pieces.
These stories told traditional Aboriginal symbols and methods speak of connection to family, community, land and self each individualised and told in ways of his ancestors.
