Wild and Free 2017
“The mural is a visual interpretation of how I feel when I leave the buildings of the city and get amongst the bush and dirt of the countryside. I feel “Wild and Free” and at one with the wilderness far away from the drama of the world most people live in.
The words are hidden like the birds are amongst the bush and also live a life that is free.
In the mural I have included a Red-capped Robin and a Yellow-plumed Honeyeater, two birds found in the area but maybe not seen by many.”
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, 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 themes are very relevant in the animal kingdom as well as to human life Brenton now works in his home studio in Perth using his medium of choice (acrylic) on commissions, murals, and exhibitions.
