Artist Brian Alfred - Discussing His Experience With Healthcare as An Artist

ARTIST BRIAN ALFRED - Interview 1 > 5 mins

A few years back, he started to do well as an artist, first with New york art dealer Max Protetch, then Mary Boone, and then to London's mega gallery, Haunch of Venison. You can see his work on his website paintchanger.com. His work is a very distinctively skillful blend of painting, collage, and digital images that early on, focused on landscape but I first know him for his portraits that I saw in Mercer St. Medical, and worked back through his output to the work he is best known for. He was admired by his peers, known for extreme focus on his subject, a relentless work ethic and was approached by New York art dealers before he graduated. He'd encountered real interest for his work real fast, and deservedly so. The influences on his work run from Hokusai and Japanese woodblock print art to Warhol and Ruscha but of course there's more. (he grew up in Pittsburg PA) His work is clear, precise, and had gone though a palpable change since 9/11. It has, in many ways become neo-Orwellian.  more »
