Gavin Brown – Melbourne

If Paul Gauguin hadn't died four years before Frida Kahlo was born, one might suspect that Gavin Brown is their lovechild. Certainly his art carries the organic lushness and slight madness of Kahlo's many self-portraits and Gauguin's Polynesian-period art. You cannot blame the Melbourne-born, 47-year-old Brown for subtlety or minimalism.
