Recently, artist Jason O’Brien was in the studio for a series of portraits with his impressive repertoire of work. Working with Jalani, Jason was able to begin telling the story in photographs about who he is as an artist and a deeper narrative of his process and connection to his pieces.
The bold themes, rich textures, vibrant color and deep shade of each piece help create the drama used to hint at his own perspectives on the highly emotional issues the work is based on.
“My art is an extension of me. With it I transcend thought into action onto canvas and with each brush stroke I am inspired” – Jason O’Brien
Jason graciously lent us ‘black cotton’ and it looks mighty fine on our wall.
http://jasonobriencollection.com/ is his current site where you can view and even purchase his pieces (if at all possible, choose-not black cotton, we do love having it).
The final images from this shoot will be incorporated into O’Brien’s incredible new web experience being developed by H&A, due out in April.
