Life is full of distorted values and notions. If we choose to follow the path of the common person, then we also choose a dull and colorless life. On the other, if we choose to follow the path of our dreams and passion then we are choosing a life filled with unknowns and left-turns, but also happiness and excitement. We have one life, live it!
Born in Tacoma, Washington in 1985, Brent Estabrook received a BA in Fine Arts from the University of Arizona, and later received his DDS (dental license) after 4 years of intense study. Although he abandoned his dental profession before spending a single day on the job, his work benefits from detailed knowledge and intense study of the human facial anatomy which is evident in his portraiture and skull works. Upon awaking from his detour towards a “safe and comfortable career” Brent was inspired to pursue his passion with reckless abandon. His playful work, ripe with sociopolitical commentary and fraught with the unbridled passion of a determined young artist, challenges the viewer to reconsider familiar images, products and ideas as he himself explores the liminal space between discovery and curiosity.
