“Looking at a Whelan painting is like looking at a stained glass window, through the eyes of Bart Simpson.”
Writer and critic Steven Martin

“Whelan’s art rescues the rich treasury of Catholic iconography from the fog of syncretist, solipsistic thinking.”
Martin Boland, Dean of Brentwood Cathedral

"...Brian is an artist of great skill, depth, and integrity, informed by both medieval and contemporary sensibilities."
