Brian Bohanan - Folk Art
Brian is a self-taught artist who draws his inspiration from is his reverence of nature, life and the experience of the creative process. He feels art is a window into the soul and a testament to life's journey and how it has influenced us. This journey is the spark for creativity and catalyst for the vision that becomes his art. It is his goal to speak through his art and have it tell a story. He finds it is teaching him to reach out to others.
He has a wide range of techniques from the conventional oil on canvas, acrylic on board, to the more unorthodox method of mixed media folk art and collage using found and repurposed objects. Brian feels that reusing materials in many ways complements his style of art. He uses mainly reclaimed wood to frame his pieces and it often becomes the canvass itself. Many paintings incorporate salvage materials that he collects from traveling the art circuit throughout the southeast.
Art has become his full-time profession for over nine years and he has participated in over well over 200 juried and non-juried art festivals as well as solo exhibits.
