About Brett Allen

From trade beginnings, Brett entered the world of art 28 years ago and now makes his shapes in his home studio in the Byron Hinterland.
He works primarily using metal and is a visually driven shape maker. He is influenced by the great strength found in the longevity of bronze, man’s first metal and still the most resilient. He is a 5 time exhibitor at the Swell Sculpture Festival, Queensland’s largest outdoor sculpture exhibition.
He has been commissioned by both Hard Rock Cafe and SeaWorld Nara Resort Surfers Paradise, Gold Coast.
His local commissions include the SAE Institute and Aquarius Backpackers Hostel in Byron Bay.
He is sought after for private commissions and supplies Byron Bay Rugby 7’s with their whale trophies.

2023 SWELL ARTWORK – Pegasus

Across an art life of 28 years I have continued the use of wings from insects and birds to angels. The pinnacle of this fascination with flight, freedom and fantasy left with only one place to go, Pegasus. Built to last a legacy. Put wings on your dreams and set them free.
