About the Artist
W. Howard Brandenburg is an artist based in Wickliffe, a small township 50km south of Ararat.
Brandenburg is fascinated in what makes the human species so successful and what that success means for the balance of nature. His oil paintings often focus on environmental changes attributed to human activities.
As a child, Brandenburg grew up immersed in art with both his mother and grandmother working as professional artists in Taos, New Mexico, U.S.A. He went on to study art and aquatic ecology at the University of New Mexico, and has been a practising artist throughout his career. In 2018, he relocated to Australia with his wife and two children.
Brandenburg has always identified the visual image as a profound form of communication and an invaluable way to perceive the world.
