One of the best things about collecting art is meeting the artist. It gives you a completely different perspective about the art. We have been following Brian‘s work for years and finally got an opportunity to meet with him and take the plunge. What a fantastic morning.
We drove out to Glendale from Venice making our way up to Burbank and coming back down. At least we were always moving. Brian’s studio is quite large. A variety of rooms with super high ceilings including art on the walls and a kitchen area. Really comfy. This piece was part of one of his video pieces.
Brian’s creativity around each of his pieces is impressive. He began in the film world so it is not surprising how his work is a culmination of creating the end video product. He paints, he makes outfits, he sculpts costumes, he does decoupage to create the character he plays inside the video who then plays around inside the film.
His studio is a combination a backroom of a garment design shop to a movie set.
Extremely inspiring artist who is just charming.
