ABOUT THE ARTIST
Raised in Beechmont, a sub-tropical town in the Gold Coast Hinterland, artist Brian Connolly has long held onto the natural roots of his upbringing.
Connolly completed a Bachelor of Creative Industries majoring in Visual Arts in 2007 at QUT Brisbane.
After relocating to Melbourne, he gained media exposure through mural collaborations with beauty salon Edwards & Co. He remains as their resident artist.
Connolly has since propelled his successes through prestigious gallery representation, exhibitions and a constant flow of commissions including a long list of mural works for varied businesses.
Now residing in Byron Bay, his bold and often whimsical works seek to bridge a link between nature and human life with the common thread of botanicals symbolising personal growth and the beauty of florescence.
