  About Beastman: 
Beastman (Bradley Eastman) is a multidisciplinary artist from Sydney, Australia. Influenced by the biodiversity, symbolism and design aesthetics behind nature’s repetitive geometric growth patterns and organic landscapes, Beastman's studio paintings, commercial projects and public murals explore a unique visual language, depicting future environments of abstracted landscapes,
 potential new life forms and human intervention.

One of the most distinctive and prolific emerging contemporary artists from Australia, Beastman has exhibited his artworks extensively around the world, has curated and organised numerous international art exhibitions and projects, and has been commissioned by the likes of Element, Facebook, Vivid Sydney, Mini, Westfield, Red Bull, Stockland, Bose, Hyundai, Smirnoff and more. His artwork was recently acquired by the National Gallery of Australia, and his large solo and collaborative mural works can be found all over Australia and around the world.
