Mon Garling

Born with a fascination for anatomy, Brett gained the nickname of 'Monster', at age five, from his early collecting of bones and animal specimens. 'Monster' was quickly shortened to 'Mon' and the name stuck. Brett is widely known as 'Mon' to friends and collectors alike.

Completely self-taught, 'Mon' takes great pride in the fact that the influences of the modern art world have not clouded nor plagued his development. Instead he used the greats such as Streeton, Roberts and Hoff as role models.

In 2004, 'Mon' opened his own Gallery where a permanent collection of his sculptures and paintings are exhibited in conjunction with his foundry and sculpture gardens.
