Bryan Larsen, 1975 | Romantic Realist painter

American painter Bryan Larsen has been drawing and painting since childhood.
As a young person he was also fascinated with math and science and always found creative ways to mix the two worlds.
After acquiring a strong foundation in art while studying illustration, and a greater appreciation for the sciences during mechanical engineering studies, he decided to take the plunge and return to his first love: fine art.

Specifically, the kind of technically challenging and representational art that evokes in the viewer an appreciation for achievement, science, engineering, mathematics and contemporary architecture.
Most of his work also has a figurative component and celebrates the beauty of the human form. These days, Bryan can usually be found standing before a large easel in his studio in Salt Lake City, UT.
The contrast of architectural forms and the organic softness of the human form is an endlessly fascinating combination for me as an artist.
I enjoy mixing these contemporary and classical elements together in my paintings, using traditional materials and the techniques of classical realism.
I hope to evoke in my viewers a sense of possibility, while satisfying the mind’s desire for detail and the eye’s desire for beauty”- Bryan Larsen.

Il pittore americano Bryan Larsen ha disegnato e dipinto fin dall'infanzia.
Da giovane era anche affascinato dalla matematica e dalla scienza e trovava sempre modi creativi per mescolare i due mondi.
Dopo aver acquisito una solida base nell'arte mentre studiava illustrazione ed un maggiore apprezzamento per le scienze durante gli studi di ingegneria meccanica, decise di fare il grande passo e tornare al suo primo amore: l'arte.
In particolare, il tipo di arte tecnicamente stimolante e rappresentativa che evoca nello spettatore un apprezzamento per risultati, scienza, ingegneria, matematica e architettura contemporanea.
