Brady Boyd is a self taught abstract expressionist based in Hattiesburg, MS. He has a two year old son named Myles that he credits for all of the positivity that you see in his art. It’s because of him that he is able to perceive the world with new eyes.
We asked Brady what inspires his work:
"I draw inspiration from the visual experience our beautiful world provides and heavily implement natural forces such as gravity and wind in my work. I attempt to convey my interpretation of the energies I experience all around me onto the canvas for you to experience. Vivid color, depth and the use of three dimensional objects and scenes are presented on a traditionally two dimensional workspace. Mood and music are also a heavy influence in what I paint and show in my pieces. I have never experienced anything as beautiful and fulfilling as creating art. Showing my other side, ALL sides, to the world has been an incredible journey for me. I hope that while viewing my art you’re able to see that vulnerability, depth and beauty that live and lie in our world and in every one of us."
We wanted to know how Brady suggests beginners get started:
"My best advice for anyone reading this would be to try your hand at creating art of ANY sort, even if you do not think of yourself as a creative or artistic person. I have never been able to draw very well at all, and because of this, I assumed I would be terrible at anything similar. This is one of my biggest regrets, as art has become an integral part of my life. Creating has become my passion and has been the catalyst for much of my spiritual/emotional growth. For you NEVER know what you are capable of until you try."
