"I think God has His hand on Brian... His art is so original and comes from within, which always makes people think.”

Art critic, Sister Wendy Beckett

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

"...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.
