East Gippsland acknowledges the Gunaikurnai, Monero and the Bidawel people as the Traditional Custodians of the land that encompasses East Gippsland Shire. We pay our respects to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people living in East Gippsland, their Elders past and present.


Bradley Brown is a proud Gunaikurnai, Bidwal, Gunditjmara artist living and working in Bairnsdale on Gunaikurnai Country. He is a full-time father and artist. His passion is helping others, encouraging and teaching young people, especially Aboriginal kids, respecting his Aboriginal culture and raising his family in the right way.

“I have a strong passion for painting and telling my stories because it keeps me busy and is important culturally.”

In 2023 Bradley won the East Gippsland Art Gallery Small Artwork prize out of a field of over 400 entrants, for his work, Clothed in Respect and Unity, wood-burning and acrylic on wood.

Special opening event 5:30pm Friday 21 June. All welcome.
