About The Artist
Bryan, as a writer and performer, is recognised as one of Australia’s finest political satirists. His work, along with his long collaboration with the late satirist, John Clarke, spans a period of nearly 40 years.
Increasingly recognised as a multi-media visual artist, Bryan grew up in Port Adelaide, where wharves, abandoned buildings and old railway stations provided his later inspirations.
A bewitching playground constantly changing, a busy harbour delivering a perpetual stream of strange looking foreigners in exotic clothing from unheard of countries who inspired him to travel. Inspiration came also from the circus and merry-go-rounds that entertained a young boy before television. And the carnival tent pitched at the annual agricultural show. Inside, the last of the Vaudeville performers hanging on for dear life, presenting their theatrical wares to a world that had moved on. Hand in hand, the slightly desperate cabaret performances at the local hotels – the singers and outfits both worn and weary.
This was Bryan’s canvas then, it remains his canvas now.
