Biography from Taos Gallery:
Living in Tucson, Arizona

Brian Freeman is a talented emerging artist with years of professional art experience. His figure drawings are full of character and emotion, which the vibrant color pastels can provide. His subject matter ranges from western to Renaissance, and he uses many different mediums, ranging from conte to oils. The one defining characteristic of his work, is the ability to capture the figure in a realistic, yet passionate way.

Brian has resided in Tucson, Arizona since 1988. Prior to moving to Tucson, he attended Phoenix Institute of Technology where he studied Architectural Design and Production Art. After school, he worked as a mural painter for four years, creating architectural related murals. For years, he dabbled in oil, watercolors and pastels searching for a creative outlet. Almost ten years after design school Brian began to realize he was lacking a fundamental education in drawing. He realized his need to return to the basics. He began working in charcoal, studying light and dark, then moved to conte and monochromatic studies. Finally, he moved to pastels as a means to explore color.

In 1996, Brian began taking classes through The Drawing Studio in Tucson. He continued to study the fundamentals of drawing, using pastels. Through this he received good training in value and drawing. During this time of study, Brian read THE ART SPIRIT by Robert Henri, which enlightened him to the importance of value. Brian has been influenced by early twentieth century portrait and figure painter, and illustrators such as John Singer Sargent, William Adolf Beaugereau, and Rien Poortvliet.

Brian has participated in many workshops to enhance his studies. He has attended drawing sessions at The Drawing Studio and the University of Arizona since 1996. He has taken workshops at the Scottsdale Artist School under the tutelage of Harley Brown, Burt Silverman, Dan Gerhartz, and Ron Riddick. Each of these training sessions has helped him to better his skill and hone his talent.

Brian’s work has been shown in several local shows around Tucson including the University of Arizona’s open sketch group show at the De Grazia Gallery in 1998, and several figure drawing shows, sponsored by The Drawing Studio. His work has also been displayed at the Scottsdale Artist School. In 1999, he placed first in the pastel category at the Scottsdale Artist School’s Best and Brightest Show.
