My name is J L Brandt. I am a Vango artist. Thank you for visiting my portfolio. J L Brandt is a painter and punk rock musician who was diagnosed at the age of 48 with autism and early childhood brain trauma. He lived most of his life never understanding why he interpreted the world differently than others around him. His unique interpretations of spatial relationships, colors, and perspective create impressionistic inspired landscape and cityscape paintings which demonstrate that no two people really see things the same way - that reality is in fact not objective, but observed and interpreted through each individual’s own eyes, complex wiring, and experiences. Jeff studied art at the Art Institute of Pittsburgh in 1982 before moving to the Lower East Side of NYC to pursue his musical aspirations. He became the lead singer and lyricist for one of NYC’s first street punk bands, Public Nuisance. Jeff’s cityscape art is reflective of the danger, violence, creativity and intense individualism that exploded on the LES in the mid-80’s. His landscape paintings represent escapes from the city’s intensity into almost dreamlike respites. Jeff’s paintings are acrylic, oil or watercolors on hand stretched canvases or hand cut boards.
