Brian is a self-taught artist currently residing in Todos Santos, BCS, Mexico. Originally from Alabama, travels have taken him throughout North and Central America and Europe.
Images from his life experiences and childhood are loosely represented in my paintings. Storytelling, children's books and his Grandmother are all inspirations for conceptualizing imagery and themes. Brian's work can be seen as either light-hearted, thought-provoking, or both simultaneously.
Building of texture and use of color are primary steps in his creative process. Elements for his paintings include several layers of acrylic paint, vinyl composite, oil stick, and a matte, protective polymer on canvas or wood.
In Brian's current body of work, he has created subjects possessing both human and animal characteristics. Inspiration for these works come from such disparate sources as Henry Darger, Crayola® crayons and Hermann Rorschach.
