Brent Hardisty is a woodland style painter who works in acrylics on canvas. His spiritual name is Niiwin Binesi translated roughly from Anishnaabemowin means Four Birds.
He lived in the city of Toronto in his earlier years and was highly influenced by the graffiti sub-culture. He eventually made a name for himself within that scene and moved onto painting murals for organizations and businesses.
This current style and medium was influenced by his bringing up in a first nation community in Northern Ontario. These pictures depict deep spiritual significance yet they always beckon the viewer to look inside themselves. For there is much to be said of the individual and their own interpretations. Much like our dreams or the colors and symbols placed through out the work.
