HERE IT COMES
FROM BROOKLYN WHELAN
Based in Sydney, Australia, Brooklyn Whelan’s sublime skyscapes tread the boundary between dream and reality. Drawing from the vast skies and incredible weather patterns that dominate Sydney’s coast, Whelan combines his passion for meteorology with vivid imagination and signature laid-back flare to create unique, absorbing artworks that transport the viewer into a state of reverie.
Having given up his position as an Art Director to pursue a career as a full-time artist, he quickly became one of Australia’s most sought-after contemporary artists. Whelan’s artworks hold a unique position within the contemporary circuit in their ability to transcend the rank of traditional land and skyscape imagery, bristling with electricity and dynamism. At once powerful and commanding, they are sensitively conveyed with a lighter-than-air attitude and stunning grace. Not only has Whelan collaborated with acclaimed brands such as Samsung, Adidas and Universal Records, he has also exhibited internationally, from Hong Kong and Bali to Atlanta, USA.
