John Bredl started painting
professionally in 1987. His many typical
scenes of the Australian outback, magnificent coastlines, mountainous
wilderness, open pastorals and the River Murray have won him over
100 national awards.
John is a plein air painter, choosing to
paint outdoors to capture the acuracy and immensity of our Australian
lanscape. His seascapes
capture mood, movement, light and vastness found on the beaches.
His inland studies depict not only the vastness of our continent
but he has also made a powerful statement about the depth and
intensity of the evening sky over an ancient land.
John is purely self taught in oil,
pastel and watercolor. John exhibits in Australia and the U.K.
His paintings are in private and corporate collections throughout
Australia and in Germany, Singapore, England, America and New
Zealand. John has received over one hundred awards and is called
upon to judge shows on a regular basis. He has been published
various times in the Australian Artist Magazine. John has held
many solo and group exhibitions. He is highly regarded in the
art world and his paintings are rapidly becoming sought after.
He is the founding member of The Brushmen of the Bay, member
of The Victorian Artist Society and Australian Guild of Realist
Artists. John exhibits at Sorrento and Flinders Fine Art Galleries
on the Mornington Peninsula.
