Well, this week I have a few new artists to let you all know about and I'm going to kick it off with Bryan Thompson.
Bryan is currently a graphic design student at University of the Arts where he is learning how to create advertisements and visually communicate messages. Before attending college, he developed an appreciation for photography and graphic design and started to do some work of his own. It was then that he saw the importance of graphic design and how it surrounds us in our everyday lives.
It is with graphic design that we are able to communicate in a faster and more concise way. Also, by incorporating photography into graphic design, the audience is able to develop a better understanding of the message being conveyed. Essentially, I feel that photography can help graphic design by giving it a sense of a life that otherwise would not be there.
Bryan tells me that he combines his love and passion of architecture with photography to manipulate structures in a way that he finds to be more interesting. Seeing how he lives in Philadelphia he is certainly surrounded by an environment of great architecture, both old and new. So, I can definitely see how his ideas and passion can be kindled by his surroundings.
- Bryan has had a few reconstructions featured in Everything is Art's issue "W".
- He was recently a part of the Art of Fashion's Visual Art exhibit on February 12th on the Empire Hotel Rooftop in Manhattan.
- On March 2, 2012 he will have an opening art reception at Cafe Lift in Philadelphia to display 13 of his pieces for a month.
- Also, on May 5, 2012 he will have another opening art reception at Steel City Cafe in Phoenixville, PA to display his prints for a month as well.
So, if you're going to be in the North East during those times swing by those locations and let him know I sent you.
Here are a few pieces of his:

I will send you updates on upcoming art shows. Also, I will occasionally tell you about new art I'm making and give you a chance to collect my art before I post them on my site for sale.
