Afternoon Storm, Waiting in the City and Man and Woman are just three of Brisbane artist Robert Brownhall's works and he's just getting started. Made famous for his vibrant and exciting paintings of Brisbane, Brownhall proudly explains how he attempts to paint Brisbane as “the most fascinating city on the planet” and Brisbane locals are all the more pleased by his efforts.

Robert Brownhall is fast gaining a worldwide reputation for capturing vibrant and lifelike images on canvas of an early 21st century Brisbane.


He has sold his works to governments, galleries and celebrities.


For Brownhall it's a far cry from his day job as a tree lopper. He paints iconic bridges, modern skyscrapers and shabby-chic enclaves such as Fortitude Valley and Woolloongabba.


And his works are featured in a new book by art critic Louise Martin-Chew, Robert Brownhall: Australian Stories.


Brownhall, 44, who lives at Upper Brookfield with wife Sarah and their three children, has become the chronicler of Brisbane.
