Brian Whelan

oldAcre650As a son of immigrants, I am no stranger to a new culture. Spending time in the US with my American wife has given me another address but the drive of my work remains the same: a search for a spiritual and metaphorical home, which finds some consolation in the subjects I choose to paint. These themes are often narratives drawn from life’s comic tragedies, on both secular and religious planes. Brian Whelan

“…a visionary painter…”
Meryl Doney, Curator for Wallspace All Hallows on the Wall

“wise, witty and affectionate paintings which range from religious iconography to images of his home city of London.”
Ian Collins, writer

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

Rev. Dr Peter Doll, Canon Librarian, Norwich Cathedral.
