Aaron Cora

Aaron Cora Born: 1981
Died: 2016
Tribe: Bundjalong Nation
Traditional name: Joongi (Brolga)Aaron Cora got into art at young age. He was inspired by his people from Bundjalong and continually strived to embrace his Aboriginal heritage.
Aaron was a very cultural man and kept close connection to their culture, customs, tradition and their ancestors which were very important to Him.
Aaron’s artwork was very abstract, portraying different rays of light through rain drops and water, all very based on nature, which created his true unique style.
His art products have displayed in art galleries, Murwillumbah and Byron-bay. Local of Tweed Heads had strong family ties from the south east QLD and Northern NSW legions.
It was likely that he would have become one of the leaders in the Aboriginal art world and even though his life was taken away too soon, his culture continues to live on.
His totem animal, the Brolga is very special, representing a bird, one of the creation ancestors that taught us how to dance, which was his passion in life besides painting.

Anthony is now based on Arakwal Country (Byron Bay) where he lives with his partner - renowned theatre & opera director Heather Fairbairn.
