20 years ago Brian Stewart left a successful career in advertising to become a painter. He's never looked back. The journey has given him a lifetime of experiences, travels and memories, not to mention a few accolades and recognition along the way. He received his early training a the Art Center in Los Angeles and later at Atelier LeSueur in Minneapolis where he learned the classic, academic fundamentals as they were taught in Paris a century ago. He enjoys sharing and passing on these fundamentals through teaching workshops. He is a signature member of the grand daddy of all the plein air groups: the exclusive Plein Air Painters of America. A visual raconteur, he's known and collected for his paintings of funk, junk and antiquity. This native Californian, who now makes his home in Minnesota, can be found playing banjo when not painting.
