Born and raised in Sydney, Brooklyn Whelan is one of Australia’s best emerging contemporary artists. Working primarily with acrylics on canvas, his style is strongly influenced by weather patterns, his days of writing graffiti and “future type shit”.
As an artist, I work hard to develop my paintings that speak both to me and to others about the beauty and power that exists within weather patterns. I constantly find myself staring into oncoming storms. I do not merely want to capture the image with my painting; rather, with strong bold strokes, I want to give it life and energy, also the sense of fantasy that one might see in an 80’s sci fi - Powerful electricity, but with a tone of grace, softness and movement.
