Mel Brigg

Mel  Brigg
Mel Brigg’s collection Exodus questions people’s movement from Africa and asylum seekers coming to Australia to find a better life. A migrant himself, Mel grew up in Africa then migrated to Australia in 1993. He now works from his studio on the Sunshine Coast and was named a finalist in the 2012 Doug Moran National Portrait Prize. “I have always been moved by the complexities of the human condition and my paintings are reflective of turbulent times that the human race may endure in countries with conflict. I also reflect on harmony and peace once pro-active personal change has occurred ” “Light is the core of my paintings, together with perspective, texture, structure and lyrically atmospheric colour. Combined, these culminate in evocative, emotive and emphatic works”.
