J. Bratby is an award-winning Australian figurative, portraiture and conceptual artist. They work with mixed media, primarily oil, acrylic and aerosol across a range of canvases, murals, interactive sculptures and recycled items. Their work studies impermanence, consciousness and existentialism and captures the wonder and awe of this unique planet. Their work references the exhaustive search for value and tradition in a digital world using mixed media. They engage the audience playfully and seek to elevate the extraordinary people and creatures that walk among us. They have exhibited both internationally and locally in traditional urban gallery settings as well as in rural festival settings. Their proposed artworks for Earth Frequency festival are based on the subjects of sorcery and witches, modern-day feminist heroes dismantling our patriarchal history one spell at a time.
