I have never experienced anything as beautiful and fulfilling as creating art. Showing my other side, ALL sides, to the world has been an incredible journey for me.
I have always been fascinated with bright colors so I was very glad I had the opportunity to interview abstract expressionist artist Brady Boyd. His work is full of creative energy, distinctive, with a vivid color palette. Read the interview to find out more about his paintings.
Tell us about yourself and what you do
My name is Brady Boyd and I am a self taught abstract expressionist currently residing in Hattiesburg, MS. I have a two year old son named. I credit Myles for all of the positivity that you will see in my art. It’s because of him that I am able to perceive the world with new eyes. He has most definitely helped me explore my creative side and believe in myself. One might say that he’s my Muse.
Who has inspired you in your life and why?
I draw inspiration from the visual experience our beautiful world provides and heavily implement natural forces such as gravity and wind in my work. I attempt to convey my interpretation of the energies I experience all around me onto the canvas for you to experience. Vivid color, depth and the use of three dimensional objects and scenes are presented on a traditionally two dimensional workspace. Mood and music are also a heavy influence in what I paint and show in my pieces. I have never experienced anything as beautiful and fulfilling as creating art. Showing my other side, ALL sides, to the world has been an incredible journey for me. I hope that while viewing my art you’re able to see that vulnerability, depth and beauty that live and lie in our world and in every one of us.
Do you have any tips for our readers that are trying to break in the industry?
My best advice for anyone reading this would be to try your hand at creating art of ANY sort, even if you do not think of yourself as a creative or artistic person. I have never been able to draw very well at all, and because of this, I assumed I would be terrible at anything similar. This is one of my biggest regrets, as art has become an integral part of my life. Creating has become my passion and has been the catalyst for much of my spiritual/emotional growth. For you NEVER know what you are capable of until you try.
