My name is Brian Shea. I am an artist living and working in the Western New York area who strives to provide beauty through art for all of my patrons. Although my passion is charcoal/graphite illustration, I also enjoy working with acrylics.
The illustrations I do are completed using mainly charcoal and graphite pencil. They may also contain some mixed media to further darken or highlight specific areas (i.e. carbon pencil, and/or white colored pencil.)
In many of the acrylic paintings, the unique display of forms and colors are brought together by the artist's hand but manipulated through the use of machines or natural forces. The paintings are built up of many layers of paint, each creating its own flowing abstract left open to interpretation by the viewer.
