BIOGRAPHY

Brenton See is a Perth artist specialising in small canvas works to large scale interior and exterior wall murals.

Brenton is inspired by the day to day struggles of the everyday person as well as the stories of happiness and sadness and life and death. David Attenborough’s documentaries have been a big influence on his work and are one of the main reasons he chooses to use animals in his pieces. Brenton enjoys using animals and objects rather than the human form to express himself and the stories he wants to tell. He is constantly focusing on the topic of “predator and prey” and “life and death” as these (as well as in the animal kingdom) are very relevant to the lives we as humans live.

After graduating secondary school Brenton then went on to study graphic design. Before starting his Advanced Diploma he decided working with computers wasn’t the direction he wanted to head down in life. Brenton searched for employment where he could use his hands to create the artwork he had in his head. In 2007 he began an apprenticeship in tattooing. At this time Brenton was drawing at home and developing a style. He fell more and more in love with working with pen and ink, acrylics and watercolours and soon people began to request his work. Brenton left the tattoo apprenticeship after 8 months and decided that painting for a living was the path he wanted to take.
