AMERICAN, BORN 1969
Brian Calvin’s highly stylized portraits feature flattened planes of saturated color and evoke elements of Surrealism, Pop art, and Cubism. The artist often paints his predominantly female subjects in extreme close-up. A single face can comprise disparate skin tones and different colored eyes. It can be difficult to decipher whether Calvin’s compositions feature one face or two, and his group scenes often merge characters’ faces and limbs.
Beneath Calvin’s bold, sunny hues lie serious conceptual concerns and an engagement with abstract principles. He has also painted landscapes and interiors inspired by his California roots and exhibited in many cities and country.
