Robby is a former super-heavy weight world champion fighter who reconnected with his passion for art within his 6 1/2 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 had his first solo exhibition at Melbourne’s prestigious Metro Gallery during 2020.
