Artist Bio

Brett Piva specialises in bespoke, hand-crafted lettering, signage, murals and has exhibited works in cities across Australia and The United States. A curious mix of ultra-modern and old-school, Brett has studied and worked in the traditional trade of signwriting throughout his career, but has also designed with agencies in London and Sydney with a portfolio including work for heavy hitters like Coca Cola, Cadbury, Virgin Mobile, Disney, Kodak and Subaru. Over recent years Brett has travelled throughout Australia and the world to conduct research and collaborate with everyone from traditional signwriters in little country towns, to world renowned artists. Brett uses traditional reverse glass painting techniques with gold leaf and enamels while also experimenting with timber sculptural works. His work is formed by developing natural patterns and lines that are found whilst adventuring in the Australian bush and within forestries of the East Australian coastline of New South Wales and Tasmania.

'Back To The Future' will launch in-store at Abicus Newcastle on Thursday 24th November 5-8pm, with the exhibition and online silent auction running through to Sunday 11th December 9pm.
