Born in Auckland, New Zealand, lives & works in Sydney, Australia
Brent is foremost an artist whose passion lies utilising photography and graphics.
He spent 10 years working in the architecture industry, which might explain his tendency to concentrate on *urban art. After building a successful business as a freelance photographer, he took a unique role at Qantas Airways as their first in-house photographer. He now has a new-found love for the aviation industry.
His first love however, will always be pattern work. Pattern in nature, pattern in architecture, the pattern of our daily lives; you will see this reflected in one way or another throughout his work.
*Urban art (from Latin urbanus, itself from urbs ["city"]) is a style of art that relates to cities and city life often done by artists who live in or have a passion for city life.
