A water colour painting by John Briggs



John Briggs is a visual artist from Dutton Park in Brisbane who has since relocated to the UK.

John was awarded a SAFE grant in 2013 to go towards Unframed, his exhibition at the Fortitude Valley gallery Jugglers Art Space.

What did the SAFE grant mean to John?

“As a result of staging the exhibition I learnt about the other side of art – the presentation.  My art was a medium with which to communicate.” 

“At the end of the day, the SAFE grant brings people together and they communicate, which is a good thing.”

“An absolute life saver. It enabled me to take my art to its natural progression – an exhibition!”
