Bruno has created a world rich with fantasy and insightful beauty derived from his imagination and inspired by his intrepid journeys to some the world most intriguing and remote regions.

Unfortunately, on the 7th of February 2009 a bushfire raged through the township, decimating everything in its path without mercy and claimed the lives of our friends and neighbours indiscriminately. Bruno was extremely lucky to survive and the rest of the family are safe and well. Bruno's home and art gallery were unfortunately completely destroyed in the blaze. But Bruno chose to stay in Marysville to rebuild his home and restore the gardens. Bruno’s passion to share his love of art and the story of life with the world has not been damaged by the fires. Whether you are new to Bruno’s works or a friend from way back, rest assured that this is far from the end of anything, it is just the beginning of something even more special.

Now with over three hundred paintings and sculptures to discover, a journey to Bruno's is one of Australia's most special attractions. So, take a look at some more photos taken from this beautiful destination...
