Australia – Artist


Name artworks


The artwork is titled “Brutalist”. A tribute to Brutalist Architecture which emerged during the 1950’s in post war Great Britain. Brutalist buildings are characterised by minimalist construction techniques that showcase the bare building materials and structural elements over decorative design. The Brutalist style commonly makes use of exposed concrete, angular shapes and a predominately monochrome colour pallet.

Australian born Clayton Blake is a multidisciplinary installation artist widely recognized for his extraordinary works that employ various elements of architecture and sculpture. His practice involves adapting everyday objects and materials to specific artistic and architectural applications. Clayton uses a diverse range of materials to create large scale, contemporary installations that challenge and excite. He constructs expansive works that respond to or reflect their environments, whilst challenging and distorting the viewer’s preconceptions of structures and space. 

Clayton attempts to expand the definition of art to include new forms of social engagement. He uses his art to promote discussion, encourage debate, and raise awareness about injustice, inequality and social change.

Clayton is a student of contemporary sculpture and a creator of interesting & thought-provoking objects.
