Australian visual artist, illustrator and designer Brentos

Brentos is Australian born Brent Turner, a visual artist, illustrator and graphic designer who paints and runs the Brentos brand from his open art studio in Dee Why on the Northern Beaches in Sydney.

Brent entered the art world in 2016 whilst working at B-Side Creative Space under the mentorship of Kenneth Chu, Jaimee Paul, Miguel Gonzales and Susie Dureau.

Through his work, he tries to capture the Australian spirit drawing on inspiration from our local landscapes and seascapes, our endemic local wildlife and of course the culture of the Australian people.

His work is often described as a uniquely tongue-in-cheek Australian style of modern art that bursts with pastel colours complimented by bold, striking linework – attempting to capture his audience in the moment and taking them on a journey of happiness, discovery and play.

Whilst avoiding sensitive political issues, Brent leans toward keeping his work light-hearted and free from political themes, instead injecting a sense of kindness in his work towards the local wildlife of Australia and encouraging his audience to develop a respect and admiration for our wildlife and to learn more about how we as humans can help them.
