Artist Geoffrey Carran has dedicated the past decade to painting explorations of Australia’s diverse bird population.
Working in the studio on canvases and outdoors on super scaled murals his work focuses on the play between detailed realism and looser painting techniques.
Geoffrey uses his public murals to highlight endangered bird species that can be found in the artworks locations. Using these murals and the publics interest in street and public art to raise awareness and start conversations about peoples connections, memories and stories about their relationship with Australia’s birdlife and its importance.
Geoffrey completed his Masters of Fine Arts in 2008 after moving to Australia from New Zealand.
Carran’s paintings, murals and prints can be found in a diverse array of locations, from recently completing three massive silos as part of the Australian Silo Art Trail in the West Wimmera to painting murals in New York, Istanbul and London but his real passion is for painting public art in regional Australia and focusing in on the most minute details for his collectors, on his studio based paintings.
