Brian Slawson has been working as a professional artist since 1992 both in the commercial and fine art fields. He is a Signature member of the Oil Painters of America. In 2006 he devoted himself full time to fine art. Brian works in oils in a contemporary realist style in which his primary focus is on capturing the mood of the subject. He is attracted to subjects that look as though they have a story to tell, a history. “I don’t necessarily try to convey a specific story, I just want people to have the same curiosity about the subject that I did.” It is this quest for mood in his work that has made Brian a favorite among collectors. His work is in private, public and corporate collections nationwide.
