Mr Behrens has been a practising, professional artist for over ten years and has exhibited throughout Australia and the United States. His works are held in collections in New Zealand, the United Kingdom, Malaysia, the United States, Hong Kong and in corporate and private collections in Australia. His successful artwork is informed by ancient and popular culture.
