Signed certificate of authenticity.

Edward Jack Humphrey's portrait of 'Stan Walker' was a finalist in the 99th year of the Archibald Portrait Prize in 2020.

Stan Walker is an Australian-born Māori singer-songwriter and actor who first captured public attention when he won Australian idol in 2009. Stan is also a first nations activist and the Cook Islands climate change ambassador.

Edward learnt about the hardship and challenges Stan faced and overcame during his early life growing up in New Zealand and later following his diagnosis with stomach cancer. The lyrics in his EP reflect his struggles with cancer, but also his compassion and love for his mother.

Edward met a proud, compassionate, talented and authentic person who believes is an exceptional role model. He thinks it was the confidence and passion in Stan's eyes, the limitless energy he radiated, his proud heritage and his relentless drive to help others that inspired Edward to extend his artistic techniques and processes to try and capture Stan Walker’s many values, beliefs and customs into a real life portrait.
