Brandes' art is abstract and often in brown colours. He had his breakthrough as artist in the beginning of the 1980s. He has inter alia done artwork on Roskilde Domkirke and mosaic (colored glass) windows in a church at Nordkap and the church Village of Hope, south of Los Angeles. In 1998, he created the enormous Roskilde Jars which stand outside the main Roskilde Railway Station.
Brandes is self-taught and his art circles around themes from Christianity. Also the ancient Greek mythology has inspired his art. Brandes has illustrated a number of books, for example Homer’s Iliad. A great part of Brandes' ceramic works are inspired by ancient Greek art and mythology.
Brades now lives in Colombes near Paris together with his wife Maja Lise Engelhardt who is also a painter.
