Brett-Livingstone Strong Bio

Brett-Livingstone Strong, Austrian (1954 - )

Brett-Livingstone Strong belongs to that rare class of celebrity, the international art star. Speaking the language of our new global culture, Strong has displayed an unerring ability to capture the attention of the public at large, winning a fervent, vital market on an enormous scale. Unique to our mass media age, his level of success is characterized by broad fame and its attendant myth-making, a lifestyle enjoyed earlier in this century by Picasso, Dali, and Andy Warhol.

Today, towards the height of his career, Brett-Livingstone Strong has become an ambassadorial spectacle of international goodwill, a painter, a sculptor and architect of monumental ideas. And also known for his portrait of Michael Jackson.

As an Australian child prodigy from the age of four, Brett routinely sold out exhibitions early in his life. In 1972, the Fine Arts Museum of New South Wales held an exhibition of painting and sculpture by Brett-Livingstone Strong with the work of famed British modernist Sir Henry Moore - Brett was just 18 years old. Strong became recognized the world over in 1973, with the high-profile commission to paint the fine art invitation for Queen Elizabeth's Royal Opening of the Sydney Opera House.

Following a rigorous academic training in architecture, Strong left Australia in 1977 on a celebrated globe-spanning exhibition of his work (sponsored by the Australian Art Council and Trade Commission). By constantly exploring innovative ways to combine sculpture with visionary architecture, Brett-Livingstone Strong had already earned a reputation for monument-building.
