Brent Hardisty is a woodland style painter who works in acrylics on canvas. His spiritual name is Niiwin Binesi, which roughly translated means Four Birds. He is from Sagamok First Nation, located on the beautiful and magical northern shore of Georgian Bay. Unlike many First Nations, he was privileged to be able to travel around Ontario and live off of the reservation for some time, including Toronto, where he resided for 8 years. Throughout this time, he was known as a graffiti artist, muralist and all around artist.
