Born and raised in Sydney, Brooklyn Whelan is one of Australia’s leading emerging contemporary visual artists. Working primarily with acrylics on canvas, his style is heavily influenced by weather patterns and futurism. His work has been described as ethereal, minimal and modern.

 

"As a painter, I work to develop paintings that speak 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."
