Brian Biedul

It never ceases to amaze me how talented artists find new way to compose their work, especially when the subject is the human form.  Such an artist is Brian Biedul.  Here he combines an element of architecture with the human body in his Cubes and Squares series.

Brian Biedul was born in Colorado Springs in 1955. He spent the better part of his adolescence in Europe where his love of art began. While living in Paris he was enrolled in his first art class under the instruction of Siegfried Hahn. After returning to America he spent time in various cities across the United States including New York, Chicago and Los Angeles where he later settled. In 1984 he graduated with a BFA from Art Center College of Design where he later taught Saturday figure drawing classes.

Biedul’s artistic development can be divided into several periods. In his early years he began with figurative painting in oils influenced heavily by the Dutch Masters. Later he began creating works of abstract expressionism influenced by the works of Mark Rothko and Franz Kline. He followed that period with installations and earthworks in the desert where his idea of Theoretical Architecture was born. Through this experimentation he found the content that would define his future work.
