Trevor ‘Turbo’ Brown’s intimate relationship with his animals and birds is shared as he lets us in to his enthralling and playful animal kingdom. Estranged from his family as a young boy due to his intellectual disability, he lived on the banks of the Murray near Mildura for some time. During this period he formed a lifelong love for the animals living along the river and in his own words, the animals were his only friends. The exuberant style of painting employed by Turbo captures this affection with a unique purity.
The artistry lies in the total lack of pretentiousness. It is all about the joy and celebration of his subjects.
