Be Deadly - NORFORCE
In 2012 Tony Albert became the Australian War Memorial's first official war artist to be attached to the Army's Regional Surveillance Force North West Mobile Unit (NORFORCE).
'I saw the recruits as everyday superheros' they had this incredible power...they wanted to stand up in their communities and be proud and strong.' [Tony Albert, March 2013]
Within the Indigenous community the word 'deadly' is used to describe something that is good, amazing, the best. In an exuberant tribute to the young recruits he worked alongside the artist has created the ultimate NORFORCE recruitment poster.
