ROBBY WIRRAMANDA

Wergaia
artist|singer|songwriter

Robby is a former super-heavy weight world champion fighter who reconnected with his passion for art within his 4-year prison sentence for drug trafficking.


Robby is a symbol of strength and hope to many inmates due to his success as an artist/singer/songwriter and his unrelenting dedication to culture, community and family.


Within his own community, Robby continues to emerge as a leader through his work at First Peoples of the Millewa Mallee , where he is developing many initiatives centred around cultural rehabilitation for Indigenous offenders.


Following on from the production of the film, Robby made global head-lines and coined the now famous #toostrongforyoukaren hash tag after an incident with a neighbour went viral.


Amidst all this, Robby continues to create and will have his first solo exhibition at Melbourne’s prestigious Metro gallery from the 9th of April.
