“I am now following my passion of creating artwork that expresses my observations of the world around us. I enjoy watching people in everyday life, inventing art that reflects our society. I want to explore people’s emotions; their joys, sorrows and toils. I paint to express my opinion of what our society does to influence us. I believe the glitz and glamour of the political arena does not reflect the person in the streets just trying to get by.”
“I am inspired by all kinds of artwork, including street writers and tattoo artists. I continually experiment with different media including the layering of latex paint in ‘dribbles’, spray paint, and most recently in collages; working to converge the multiple styles to create the most interesting compositions. But my first love is painting with oils, as it allows me to show the power of light and how it reflects what we see around us.”
Brinton Farrand graduated from Carmel High School, Carmel, IN (1977). He attended Purdue University, receiving a teaching degree in 1981. In 1986, he finished his Masters in Art Education from DePauw University. He participated in the Chicago Art Institute Teacher’s Art Program, working in collaboration with teachers and professional artists from 2010 thru 2013.
In 2011 he was the recipient of a Lilly Foundation Teacher’s grant. He studied at Studio Escalier in France for three months with Timothy Stotz and Michelle Tully.
