Who is the Artist…
Over the past number of years oil painting has become a passion for Bryan. After suggestions from other family artists, going back four generations, he began painting in January 2013. Self-taught, he paints what he enjoys in life, pop culture and whatever excites the artist inside him. He continues to expand his perspectives with oil techniques, photography and other mediums. Bryan is originally from Beech Grove, IN a suburb of Indianapolis. Since 2015 he and his family have lived in Terre Haute, IN.
How He became an Artist…
My Great Grandmother was an artist. She encouraged and taught my mother to paint and after retirement my Grandfather took up oil painting completing three generations. For ten years prior to 2013 my mother had been encouraging me to join in the family tradition. While discussing the holidays, she was asking about gift options and as always I said, she did not need to bother with a gift, but what came out was “okay I’ll give painting a try”. I asked her to put together some hand-me-down paints, brushes and canvas, she was no longer using and I would see what my hands could do. Still nervous that I had no artistic talent and having no formal art class since I was a kid, I let the supplies sit in the corner for a month looking at them every day until I had the courage to put paint to canvas. After watching a couple of Bob Ross Joy of Painting episodes I sat down to paint my first piece in January of 2013. Hundreds of pieces later you could say the rest is history…
What are some Inspirations…
Bryan paints what he enjoys in life. It might be from pop culture or from observing interesting things around him. It has come from music, television, movies and of course anything that catches his eye. "I have learned something new from every painting I have ever done. As I get older, I find the artist in me has come to the forefront." Bryan looks to expanding the everyday things he always did into pieces of art. "In the business world, I am very process and detailed oriented so when it comes to being creative I have to let this go, look beyond the how to do it and enjoy the process of just letting the brush work its magic." Very few of his paintings overlap in what they represent but still have a distinct style. He likes to call his art style, “Bryanism”.
Bryan loves traveling and specifically visiting National Parks & Monuments. While reading National Parks Magazine, he came across an article for the See America Poster Project and immediate wanted to be involved. The first choice was Badlands National Park. On New Year’s Day 2014 he sat down and painted what became his first contribution. As an amateur photographer, he knew there was a great amount of photography from his National Park visits across the County and a chance to expand and include both unique views of these photos transitioned into posters and for original creations on canvas. Currently there are over 200 posters in his CAN collection. See more at: https://creativeaction.network/collections/bryan-bromstrup
