Born and educated in Johannesburg, South Africa, Brian Liebenthal came to Los Angeles in the early 90’s to further his studies in music composition and film scoring. Since early childhood, Brian was playing piano, drawing or paging through art books of Rembrandt, Rubens and Caravaggio but decided to dedicate his formal education to music. It wasn’t until 1993 after a trip to Europe that Brian was deeply moved and inspired to paint professionally after seeing the works of contemporary and classical art masters up close. After returning to the United States, he immersed himself into an intensive study period learning the techniques and styles of both classical, contemporary masters and street artists. Brian never felt loyal to any particular discipline or genre and nothing was off limits to get the job done. After many years of honing his craft, Brian has emerged on the contemporary art scene as someone that is able to tackle a wide variety of subjects with a unique style and technique that is clearly his own.
