Brendon Murless was born in 1983 in Powerstock, Dorset. Interested in sculpture, he achieved a Higher National Diploma in 3D Design in 2001. Murless takes inspiration from the human form, looking at what us human physically and emotionally. He portrays this by exploring the body in different forms, poses and materials. Based in the South West of England from the early 2000s to the present. He's exhibiting his prolific range of original works in galleries and collections all across the country.

The whole scene tales place in a wooden closed frame made by artist. The artist's signature is engraved on the reverse.
