Brendan O'Connell is an American painter who has been exploring the everyday through contemporary art for twenty years.
His work uses binary genres: traditional and contemporary, figurative and abstract, high and low art perspectives, mystical and pop. By exploring ideas through paint, O'Connell allows the concept to dictate the particular style of paintings, making his portfolio eclectic.
His work has been collected widely and exhibited in New York, Shanghai, Toronto, and Boston. He has been featured in the New Yorker, Time Magazine, The Boston Globe and reviewed in Art in America.
Brendan is also the artist/founder of Everyartist Live! a non-profit event whose purpose is to Spark Creativity. Everyartist and its supporters are responsible for coordinating the largest community art event in history in 2013, and expect to double in size in 2014.
