About Travis De Vries
Travis De Vries is a concept artist, podcaster, writer and producer known for fusing Gamilaroi storytelling with modern tropes, characters and themes. Travis’ creative body of work ranges from Indigenous futurism to Gamilaroi noire.
Travis is one half of Broriginals, a comedy podcast that has grown a cult following, which uses the idea of Aboriginal self-help gurus as a starting point for improvisation comedy with a racial bite. In 2018 Broriginals coined the name Wuggles (non-Indigenous-non-magical).
Alongside his artistic endeavours, in 2020 Travis founded AwesomeBlack.org as a platform for First Nations digital-based creatives, podcasters and gamers, overseeing a building network, and setting the standard for independent digital content produced and created by First Nations artists.
