As a watercolourist, I draw on a variety of themes, with a focus on landscapes, alpine snow gums, city scenes, maritime themes and portraiture.
Born in artistic Eltham, Julian Bruere studied Graphic Design at RMIT, embarking on numerous artistic and illustrative jobs as a book illustrator, advertising artist, animation designer and product and real-estate artist until becoming dedicated to teaching watercolour and being a professional painter.
He has travelled and painted in Europe (2011), New Zealand (2014) and England (2017). In his latest English exploration, he painted in a sketchbook creating a selection of watercolour studies and drawings featuring locations in London; Broadway and the Cotswolds; Llandudno, Northern Wales; Staithes, North Yorkshire, and Bath.
Bruere is a regular exhibitor in Australia and abroad, including China, and for the past eight years has been involved with FIVE, an annual group exhibition of select VAS artists.
Among his many awards are Victorian Art Society Artist of the Year (2010, 2013, 2018); the Kenneth Jack Memorial Award (2010, 2014), the AGRA (Australian Guild of Realist Artists) Medallion (2013, 2015), as well as multiple prizes for watercolour in various suburban and Rotary Exhibitions, including Mt Waverley, Camberwell, Yea, Parade, Warrandyte, Alexandra Bacchus Marsh and Box Hill.
He is a popular watercolour teacher conducting classes at The Victorian Artists Society and Doncaster Templestowe Arts Society and presents many workshops and demonstrations. As a teacher, he believes and educates artists in the importance of drawing and structure in painting. The basic genres are explored in a low-key manner allowing artists to find their confidence with the watercolour medium as well as their style and understanding of subjects.
Bruere is the Victorian Vice President of the Australian Society of Maritime Artists a past Treasurer of the Victorian Artists’ Society. He is a member of the Australian Guild of Realist Artists, the Watercolour Society of Victoria and a former member of the Twenty Melbourne Painters Society.
Julian Bruere was elected a member of the Australian Watercolour Institute in 2015.
