LUKE KELLY “BEAUTIFUL BIRDS”
Luke is a self-taught painter who’s inspired by Australia’s natural beauty and boisterous wildlife and has an ongoing obsession with painting Australian parrots. He’s exhibited in galleries across NSW, was awarded first place in the global online competition “Art Wars” in 2017, has been published in the book by Outback Creative.
Luke’s painting style has evolved in response to his appreciation for the photography technique of Bokeh – which creates the effect of soft out-of-focus backgrounds bringing attention to the subject. Luke finds that acrylic paints achieve the intensity of colour, sharp lines and soft layering he desires in his pieces.
