Brighton, England 1939BRIAN BLANCHFLOWER was born in Brighton, England in 1939. In 1972 he migrated to Perth in Western Australia, where he still lives and works, and has established himself for many people as the most important talent to emerge in the visual arts in Western Australia during the last thirty years.
Blanchflowers work has a unique affinity with the land as well as the processes of nature itself. His original approach to materials and the profound scope of his artistic practice have resulted in an oeuvre that has become highly influential to both other artists and collectors through Australia.
Blanchflower has work in every major gallery collection and museum in Australia, as well as leading art institutions throughout Europe and the United States.
