Australian Artist Gavin Brown knows how to grab one's attention. His series of paintings titled 'Melbourne' clearly demonstrates this. The works are explosions of color bursting forth with unmistakable human expression.
Gavin Brown captures a raw and organic beauty in his muses; seeming to emphasize this aspect, he drapes many of his subjects in lush masses of flowers that flow around the the people they adorn like a stream around rocks.
The urban scenes he depicts are just as full of life. In one such illustration, Gavin Brown portrays a lounge overflowing with people. In fact, the scene is almost flora;: each person is a petal or vein in some great, raucous plant piercing through the walls, chairs and bar of the cafe.
Gavin Brown has a talent for finding the humanity in people.
