Day 151: Brenton Rhodes

I primarily work in mixed media, both in painting & drawing.

I challenge viewers with the inundation of rich saturated color in order to question society stereotypes of identity, gender, and other factors that often divide us.

This germane aspect of my art work is derived directly from personal experience from people who stereotyped me throughout my youth.

So, I strip away that option by replace it with different colors that are not identifying skin tones. With puzzle like configuration I put together faces, and figures to let the viewers desired and interact with each piece.

I was born in Dallas, grew up NYC and did school in Utah and Arizona!
