Brendon Murless was born in 1983 in Powerstock, Dorset, in a rural environment that influenced his whole production. Since his teenage years, encouraged by his artistically inclined family, Brendon started creating with clay, wire and wood; he carved decorative pieces and drew pictures of wildlife.
Interested in sculpture, he achieved a Higher National Diploma in 3D Design in 2001, whilst helping with his brother’s landscape gardening business; these experiences made him realise what a massive diverse combination of materials he could use to build his artworks. In a synthesis of traditional techniques and contemporary art expression, the artist’s body of work is inspired by the human form and the essence of humanity, both physical and emotional. Brendon is open to exploring and modifying his ideas during the creative process; working on his sculptures, he especially considers the natural and artificial changing of light direction, which he believes to be essential to enhance his work’s shape and meaning in any type of setting.
Based in the South West of England from the early 2000s to the present, Brendon has constantly secured commissions from private and public clients - such as the National Trust - as well as exhibiting his prolific range of original works in galleries and collections all across the country.
