Brian Nash

Artist Statement

"I was born and raised in Boston, and have an MBA from Dartmouth.  I was an Account Executive at the Leo Burnett ad agency in Chicago, and then was the Director of Retail Marketing and Advertising for Polo Ralph Lauren in NYC when I got the bug to write country music.  I moved to Nashville to become a songwriter, and have had a few dozen songs recorded.  I thought that writing would be it for me: I couldn't imagine loving anything more.

Well, I was wrong...

Although I've always loved art and had spent an absurd amount of time in museums and galleries, I didn't start painting until fairly recently.  I've traded my guitar for a paint brush, and I couldn't be happier.  My art is now sold in galleries around the country, and my paintings are in the permanent collections of many children's hospitals, high-end restaurants, and boutiques.

I'm also represented by two licensing agencies: McGaw Graphics for reproduction prints and poster, and ArtLicensing for the commercial use of my images. 

I'm drawn to paintings that have an inherent narrative, which may be a result of my background in advertising.  It manifests itself in the graphic images of some of the paintings."
