His genuine love for the
beach lifestyle is evident in his images, sun drenched views
of those little observations of scenery that go overlooked by
most painters. More reflective than sentimental, Brian Sisson's
timeless imagery evokes the true casual attitude of small Southern
California beach communities. The viewer feels as if he/she can
walk right into the calming scenes.
He states: " I purposefully
don't include people in most of my images, I'm impressed with
the unexpected unpopulated moments of stark geometric scenery
that the beach community offers up. You look to your left on
a fall day, and you glimpse a startling view of something mundane,
a parking meter or a view of a normal walk street, and you make
a mental snapshot. These little moments of thanksgiving are what
people carry around in their heads, and they make life more enjoyable.
I take those and create them on large canvases, an affirmation
of the little appreciations we all share".
Brian's new subjects include famous
Los Angeles eateries, the Pacific Coast Highway, rural California
scenics and even modern tiki paintings. Prolific and dynamic,
Brian Sisson creates truly modern and distinctive, beautiful
canvases and limited edition prints.
Brian has a lowbrow art alter ego:
Big B creates Kar Kulture art,
tiki art, girlie art and whacky retro designs and interiors.
Big B art is marketed through alternate
channels owing to the very different nature of the material.
