Artwork Description

Acrylic Paint on metal

Signed on the front

Brendan Kelly lives in the hills of Mullumbimby, Northern NSW where he has a huge art studio and doesn't really like visitors. A Sydney Morning Herald journalist referred to him as 'A hermit oil painter', which isn't quite correct because he uses acrylics.

Left school in the mid 80's and worked in the graphic arts trade, then got into cartooning and humorous illustration for print media as well as illustrating children's books (The Perfect Poo, The Ugly Dickling & The Runt Who Said C#nt). He was a nationally published cartoonist in a major magazine but got sick of that pretty fast. Started doing 'fine art' after being hypnotized by an NLP therapist (this is a true story) and has been drawing and painting non stop ever since.

Generally he likes to paint things, lean them against the wall of his studio and forget about them until he needs something to paint on, so he paints over the thing he originally painted, even though it may have been well worth keeping. ‘Exhibits from his home studio where he hosts 'Forest Art' shows.

Brendan has extremely positive quotes about his work from Australian artists Reg Mombassa and others but feels silly putting them here.

His influences are Alfred Wallace, Miles Davis, The Dalai Lama and The Butthole Surfers.

Medium

Acrylic paint on 2mm aluminium sheet with pine timber backing. Very sturdy. Just place 2 screws in the wall and hang onto timber backing. Easy. The artwork then 'floats' out from wall 4cm as in photo. Looks very 'modern'.
