Brian is a creative that dug into his creativity at a very young age. Influence by the monsters in the movies and the masks that would hang in Halloween shops. The strange and beautiful from nature, these were the images that stuck in his mind and fueled his passion. Drawing from his favorite images in magazines or movie covers he would create his own artwork to put on his walls. He would create his own characters once in a while but would focus on the creatures he loved from the movies and learning the techniques from others. As he grew older and seeing his favorite images being made over and over again by the world he started shifting towards giving birth to his own monsters and trying to create the characters that would make an impact like those from the old films. These would be characters and creatures that would stand out in a person’s mind and last a lifetime.
This continued until college where he got his degree in animation, creating new characters and making them move. This is where he first started sculpting and making stop motion puppets. The sculpting phase struck a new chord and spawned a new hobby for him. It wasn't so much about the animation of the character but bringing a new one to life, a new beast that the world has never seen. Learning the process he started to pursue new passions after college. He started by making the masks he collected as a child and wanted to fill his walls with the monsters he made alongside his favorite monsters.
3 years later he was working 2 jobs along with trying to pursue his career in art. He was at a life changing moment when he looked at his art and didn't feel anything. “I was looking at my characters and I felt nothing. They weren't speaking out to me and they weren't interesting to me. This is when I told myself I need to step up my game.” After this is quit 1 of his jobs and poured everything he had into his passion. He took a character that he loved and gave it a soul. He put his heart into this piece and it was immediately recognized by collectors. The feedback and attention he received from this piece was an eye opener as well as a motivator to keep moving forward and to pour my emotions into each piece he created. This is when he made the decision and started to develop his brand.
Since then he has continued to learn and grow as an artist. He expanded his works and abilities from masks into resin busts, model kits, and portraits as well as upped his performance in painting. He learned on his own from watching other artists, demonstration videos, studying anatomy and facial structure, as well as studying life and the emotions and characters around us both human and nature. All of his past experiences led him towards making monsters and characters he enjoyed from his childhood. Now he is excited to give birth to his own creations that he can share with viewers from around the world. Unleashing his creativity for the world to experience and be inspired.
