Shaun Thomas is a self-taught traditional contemporary artist who is of Indigenous heritage.
Shaun utilises his artwork as an avenue to express himself and to keep him grounded to his culture. Shaun’s artwork depicts and expresses his strong connection to his culture and his people. Shaun draws from his life experiences of what it is like to grow up as an Indigenous man in Australia and utilises traditional Aboriginal symbols to bring awareness to his culture with a contemporary twist.
Shaun’s life motto is “Change the World”. Shaun believes that his artwork is one avenue that will achieve this as it tells a story, his story, a story of tough beginnings with a bright future and endless possibilities.
