Artist's description:

Painted in Aboriginal flag colours with a blue sky background this portrait was painted just six months before the subject died. His eyes held so much of his story and there was his cheeky nature mixed into the childhood trauma he never overcame. I did not know him long but he has left a deep imprint on my life. Not sure who would buy a portrait of a stranger and I put it in the mix to seek an answer to that question for I feel his face speaks volumes. (or it did to me) Here is a video her created a few months before he died. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ccIs3m2jRko He wanted his voice to be heard. He wanted his story to be told. As a boy no one believed him because the man that molested him was a head master of a school and he was just a boy.
