Born from the creative hands of internationally exhibited brothers Jo & Graeme, Hagan Brothers breathes new life into the modern art space and audaciously showcases the brothers’ conventional artistic training into contemporary pop art influenced pieces.
Sown from the seeds of their internationally accredited master impressionist father Robert Hagan, brothers Jo & Graeme were artistically trained from a very early age. The more traditional style for which the brothers have gained a reputation have been exhibited in countless well regarded galleries across the USA and Australia including galleries in Aspen, Beaver Creek, Denver, Dallas, Jackson Hole and right across the mid west.
The brothers’ recent works are a sharp departure from the more conservative styles for which they have become known. In this way, their traditional training transports them outside the confines of impressionist artistic styles. This allows the pieces to showcase more intellectually daring and challenging musings and experimental, pop art influenced statements. The Hagan Brothers seek to lead your imagination astray.
Australian Artist Graeme Hagan began his artistic career as a child. Borrowing a brush and palette from his father, the critically acclaimed Robert Hagan, Graeme felt called to paint and continue the family legacy. Graeme is a graduate of The Southport School, where he was awarded an art scholarship for the senior years of his education.
Upon graduation, Graeme began exhibitions and tours around the world. His impressionist pieces have been featured across the United States, England, and Australia, among others. At a mere 27 years of age, Graeme is an established artist with studios in the US and Australia. Graeme feels great honour, privilege and obligation to continue the traditional impressionist style of art, paying homage to those who came before him.
Australian artist Jo Hagan also began his artistic career as a child, although he has not stayed on the traditional artist path since that time. His diverse background, having studied accounting, worked in the mines and started his own fashion labels, have influenced his artistic style which is anything but conventional.
Jo’s contribution to the Hagan Brothers works clearly has more of a modern and contemporary flavour, re-appropriating commercial and commonplace imagery to send powerful and sometimes controversial messages. Jo, whilst also heavily influenced by the career and talents of his father Robert Hagan as well as that of his brother Graeme, has also been traditionally trained and has used this training to blend and harmonise traditional imagery with contemporary and modern art.
