BRIAN HOLDEN is a San Francisco based artist working in oil on canvas. Born was raised in California, he is self-taught and continues to learn with every piece he does. While first hand experience has been a critical part of his development, Brian draws inspiration from the colors and movement of every day life as well as the different emotions we feel as humans. Art is about making connections.
He works primarily with oil as it enables him to mesh different colors together along with texture to create movement in his pieces. "I want people to want to reach out and touch my work whether it is because of the colors, texture, or movement in the piece." For me, art is all about how each person experiences the work. We are all drawn to different colors or movement. We can all look at the same piece and come away with completely different emotions, feelings, and experiences. That is what makes art so beautiful and unique."
