The Art of Brad Payne
Brad is a 33 year old Melbourne based artist and custom painter who
works out of his studio/gallery in Spotswood, Victoria. Whether it’s
airbrushing award winning custom motorcycles, painting photo realistic
portrait commissions, traveling and painting murals all over the world
or working on his own unique surreal drawings and paintings, there is
always something coming out of his studio that sets new standards in
detail, creativity and quality.
Early on in Brad’s career, studying and becoming proficient in photo realism was his main focus. He painted commission based portraits for clients at home in Australia and also abroad on his travels around the globe.
From a young age Brad has been creating alternate realities from imagination that are often ominous and strange, a unique reflection of the sometimes crazy and overwhelming world we live in.
Although Brad has his home base studio in Melbourne, his roots of being a nomadic traveler are still strong. 20 countries and counting, he’s left a paint trail of wall murals and commissions around the globe from Europe to Africa and Central America, opportunities to travel and create are too good to pass up!
