About Brian Leverton

 
 
  • Biography

    Born in Cornwall in 1945, he showed an interest in art from an early age, following his grandfather around Europe painting and sketching until he earned a scholarship to the Redruth School of Arts. Over those 4 years he won many awards, widening his range of media, depth of experience and understanding of the arts.

    During the late 60s and earlt 70s Brian delivered boats throughout the Mediterranean enabling him to attend many art workshops primarily in the artistically inspired cities of France and Italy.

    In 1975 Brian set off for 2 years in Asia working,studying martial arts and gathering material for his art. Asia deeply influenced his use of colour and sense of essence.

    In the late 70s Brian dragged his Cornwall-loving family to Australia to "see what he could see" and immediately fell in love with the animals and beautiful lanmdscapes. While he has always been enamoured of landscapes and nature, the Australian wildlife and enviroment gave him new enthusiasm to paint in his style of realism. Since then Brian has explored Australia extensively from Darwin to Tasmania and spends months at a time in the bush sketching and photographing. Atother times he attends workshops always interested in new techniques, styles and ideas.He is a multiple award wining artis and is totally committed to his art and is
