Brendan Murphy Brendan Murphy is a world famous artist. He was born in 1971 in Bloomington, Indiana, but grew up in Providence, R.I. on. Brendan's artistic career began in New York City, where he learned of New York's most iconic painters, Erich Fischl, David Salle and Ross Bleckner. Their influence is clearly visible in Brendan's color guidance and experimentation with forms. Brendan continues to push the walls of creativity beyond the boundaries of the canvas, exploring sculptures, concept designs, and a wide variety of materials and tools. Brendan has developed his own style, a definitely dynamic mix of abstract and figurative form. Every work by Brendan maintains a consistent exploration of color, language and symbols.
Thematically, Brendan explores the interplay of beauty, power, and the need to understand the energies of life. The potential of art to transmit positive energy and the effect that positive energy has on society as a whole inspire Brendan in particular. Brendan's talent lies in his ability to reconcile these different elements of exploration with the background of his greatest inspirations; beautiful women, athletes, powerful symbols and the spectrum of human emotions. Brendan currently works from his studios in Malibu, California and Brooklyn, New York, and his work is represented in over 500 private collections, and has been exhibited in museums and galleries around the world.
