FROM VIDEO GAMES TO FINE ART FOR BRISBANE ARTIST DUNCAN MATTOCKS


Duncan Mattocks' Artwork

For years, Duncan Mattocks worked on art for the “Grand Theft Auto” series of video games but the Brisbane-based artist has also featured in fine art exhibitions across Australia and Scotland.

His new exhibition “Advance” is on display at the Brisbane Modern Art Gallery, incorporating some of his sci-fi-influenced artworks and some of his nature and animal portraits, another passion of his.
Painting in the style of the Dutch masters, Duncan also incorporates signature Brisbane landmarks and some of the residents of the area as well into his work: Bulldog - Duncan Mattocksgiant threatening birds perch atop Brisbane landmarks like the Gas Ring, Breakfast Creek Wharf, Powerhouse and New Farm Park.

The Arnott’s factory, Chinatown buildings and a graffiti wall in Fortitude Valley’s Robertson St have also featured in Duncan’s past work.

Duncan’s “Advance” exhibition is on now until March 26 at the Brisbane Modern Art Gallery at 483 Brunswick Street, Fortitude Valley.  CLICK HERE for more art and details.
