SPECIALTY: Crafting of the Image

Scott Breton is a figurative fine artist from Brisbane, Australia.

After completing a science degree (BSc (Genetics) University of Queensland) and contemplating a career in biotechnology, Scott committed fully to pursuing art, continuing a classically leaning arts education and practise begun much earlier. In 2012 Scott won the highly contested A.M.E. Bale Travelling Scholarship, Australia’s largest national prize for developing the careers of traditional representational artists. This allowed Scott to do further study with contemporary classical artists in the US and Europe, and has contributed to his view of the relevance of Renaissance thinking and aesthetics in the Arts in the 21st century.

Using a range of traditional drawing, painting and sculpting media as well as exploring digital counterparts to these, Scott sees plastic composition rather than any particular media as the core of the classical ethos. He is interested in how this sense of plasticity can be utilised by the contemporary artist. This endeavour seems to closely mirror a more general exploration of how the specifics of the contemporary human experience relate to and can be informed by insights about the human condition that have emerged across all of human history.

After winning the Lethbridge 10,000 Small Works prize in 2016, Scott began regular solo shows with Lethbridge Gallery.

To continue and expand his work in fine art education, Scott was a cofounder of The International Arts and Culture Group (TIAC Group) in 2016, and now spends his time between Brisbane, Australia and Florence, Italy, working on his compositions and TIAC’s arts education projects.
