Following the summer, the tide rises and brings us Nat Chapman’s latest release in collab with Yarn: Reel Warriors! Reel Warriors is inspired by Australian First Nations people from ocean Country and their cultural fishing practices. Each Reel Warrior polo offers a unique colour and design, representing the fierce fishermen who came before.
ABOUT THE ARTIST
" I am a Proud Goenpul/Yuggera Man of North Stradbroke Island / Brisbane City. Also hailing from the ‘Wambia’ Tribe on the outskirts of the Northern Territory, the 'Brunette/Chapman families' is where my artistic flair descends from. As a young Indigenous man I have had the privilege to travel to multiple countries devotedly expressing my cultural heritage through song & dance. My skin name is ‘BILLEN’ which means the Parrot & I now have the privilege to express myself through my Art.
All 4 of my designs depict the First Nation connection with Australia’s salt water environments and its marine life. The way we love & respect our country goes hand in hand with our coast lines & oceans. We have been sustained by these environments & their marine life for thousands of years.
