Ready to Hang
This painting is acrylic, with cut out and glued foam "swimmers," which is in keeping with the original, which was made from cut out paper. It's wired and ready to hang!
I'm a child of New England in the 60's. I grew up in Boston, and spent my summers at my grandfather's house on Cape Cod or on my dad's boat on Nantucket. I have such fond memories of that era, and I love the aesthetic and innocence of the 60's. I tend to paint imagines from my memory, which give my paintings a somewhat nostalgic feeling, while also being very modern.
I was born and raised in Boston. I moved to Chicago after college, and worked at Leo Burnett, one of the largest ad agencies in the world. I left Burnett to get an MBA at Dartmouth’s Tuck School of Business. After getting my MBA, I moved to NYC and became the Director of Retail Marketing and Advertising for Polo Ralph Lauren. I loved Polo and NYC, but was eager to explore a different creative outlet, so I moved to Nashville to write country music. I had a bunch of songs recorded, but I realized that my creative interest was in the visual arts, so I stopped writing to focus on painting. My art is now sold in galleries around the country, has been seen decorating the sets of many tv shows -- including Nashville! -- and has been reprinted on items such as wrapping paper, wallpaper, greeting cards, etc. I’ve also created LaLa Land by Brian Nash, a line of American-made pajamas and other apparel. LaLa Land combines my interest in fashion and painting. Thank you. Brian
