Meet Brett

Artist Brett Field creates beautiful architectural ink drawings that capture the backdrops against which we live. Through a technique of mixed ink on paper, Brett draws the exteriors of homes, buildings and shops; urban and rural premises and abodes.

“I’ve had a fascination with architecture for a long time but not in the traditional sense,” says the Cape Town based artist. “I’ve always looked at a building and built a story or tale in my head about who lives there based on what I see or don’t see in the building.

“Buildings are where we work and where we rest, where we entertain and where we are entertained, where we hide and where we heal. They are where we feel our safest and our most vulnerable. I may be sketching architecture, but make no mistake, my art is about people"
