Brendan O'Connell Bio
About The Artist
Brendan O'Connell is a quintessential American painter who explores the everyday through contemporary art. His work uses binary genres: traditional and contemporary, figurative and abstract, high and low art perspectives, mystical and pop. By exploring an idea through paint, O'Connell allows the concept to dictate the particular style of paintings, making his portfolio eclectic. His Walmart paintings have been collected widely and exhibited in New York, Shanghai, Toronto, Boston and reviewed in Art in America and the Boston Globe.
