Brian's Digital Art brings together two of his interests: photography and digital manipulation. After graduating in Engineering from Imperial College, London, he spent many years working in the IT industry learning about digital technology, whist maintaining a semi-professional interest photography. His first photographic expressions were in black and white, but he soon moved into colour and made use of natural lighting to capture natures images, especially sunlight through leaves and other objects and reflections in water.
His work in the IT industry gave him skills to utilise modern digital technology and combine this with his photogaphic interest. He was now able to utilise his large photographic collection to create new images and become a true digital artist. London exhibitions include Parallax Art Fair, Brick Lane Gallery and A&D Gallery, Chiltern Street (5 th to 9 th June 2018).
Artist about his work:
"My photographic collection, a record of places, environments and people encountered on my travels over the years, is my artists pallette; my digital manipulation techniques my brushes. My themes are varied being surrealistic and/or witty but, hopefully, always thought provoking. They often depict ordinary objects in unusual contexts, challenging observers preconditioned perceptions of reality. They are influenced by pop, minimalist and conceptual art with colour playing and important role. All images and backgrounds are lifted from my photographic collection and digitally engineered.
As my images are digital, I print them on various media including brushed aluminium, acrylic and canvas. Each media gives a unique visual of the final image. All prints on each medium are in limited editions of 20."
