Brian earned a BFA with Distinction from the Massachusetts College of Art in Boston, MA. Since then he has had solo shows at the Reciever Gallery in San Francisco, CA and at Space 1026 in Philadelphia, PA.
Brian draws inspiration from his belief in a perpetual creation myth; this world constantly destroys itself and then blossoms from its own ashes, in flux with life, permanence, and reality. Brian has constructed a new American folktale through his technicolor paintings that are tarnished with American history, Pre-Renaissance and Persian miniature painting, worship, dreamscapes, backlight posters, and the fantastic. These new works are vividly patterned compositions that are designed to entrance the viewer like a siren, disguising and distorting violence.
