Born in Meckering in 1926, and raised in Northam Western Australia, Brian McKay, after being chosen to represent Australian child art in the 1938 New York World’s Fair, decided at age eleven, he should become an artist. He has persisted with this ambition most of his life, and in 1961 was invited to join the Perth Group with Guy Grey Smith, Robert Juniper and Tom Gibbons.
McKay was a master of technical innovation in his work, an inspirational teacher and a tireless supporter of political causes, his social conscience awakened by his political involvement in protest movements in Greece, London and in Paris in May of 1968.
