Miami artist Brandon Aday works with acrylics & oils on canvas and paper, he is best known for his eye-catching, large-scale abstract paintings. Brandon has had a lifelong love of art, inspired from an early age by his Mother who is also an artist. He is originally from the South Jersey/Philadelphia area, and attended the Art Institute of Philadelphia. In addition to his paintings, the artist creates his own line of art merchandise, which includes home decor, apparel and accessories.
"I get inspired by urban scenery, concrete structures, cracked sidewalks, or graffiti filled walls. If I see a stain or peeled paint on a weathered surface, I need to take a picture of it for later use. I have hundreds of these inspirational photos on my phone from random places. I like to look at them to absorb them into my subconscious, to come out in unexpected ways on the canvas," explained Aday.
