Artist: Brandon Clancy
Brandon is a native to Chicagoland, and has extensively traveled both domestically and internationally. With influences from Eastern culture and spiritual practices to street art, his primary focus is to convey the unification of mind, body, and soul. "I view my paintings as fragments of the now. They reflect the journey of my own consciousness, as it is ever-evolving and dynamically chaotic, yet harmonious." His exclusive series with Mako James entitled "Unification of Mind, Body, and Soul.", is a inside look of geometric patterns and a beautiful synopsis and continuation of his budding body of work.
Brandon attended the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC) for a year before dropping out to pursue his passion in painting as well as body piercing and traveling at the age of 18. "SAIC was an extremely beneficial experience for me. It greatly improved my understanding and approach to creating art. This plays a crucial role in my work today."
Through the use of pattern and color, Brandon's paintings explore the relationship of geometric pattern and the effects on the human conscious. "My work is a direct cause-and-effect of my life. With a focus of growth and exploration, these pieces are a culmination of my experiences and portray the journey of my observations in the physical, mental, and spiritual realms. I see these geometrical structures as beautiful representations of the ever growing consciousness of ourselves, and us as a people. I've always been fascinated by the re-occurring patterns found in science and nature, these elements play a major role in the composition and flow of my paintings."
