NZ Art Show Online

Brian Nelson


I am a graphic designer and illustrator by profession. I learned my trade in the pre-digital era and I gained some great skills under some outstanding tutors - most notably John Drawbridge, Roger Hart and Ray Ramsay.
Over the years I found my work was becoming more specialised in publication design, at the expense of the more enjoyable illustration work. I took up painting for its own sake in 2002.
I studied fine arts at the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology and gained my MFA in 2006. My subject matter has ranged from landscapes to portraiture and kiwiana.
