Brian Stone graduated from SAIT in 1974 and followed a career in architecture, construction and property development. Having painted as a hobby most of his life, he eventually earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from ACAD in 2004.
Inspired by history represented through art, the enduring power of the elements and personal experience, Brian is a student in the North Romantic tradition with a focus on contemporary abstract interpretation of the urban and natural landscape and human intervention therein.
Through his work, Brian seeks to conceal and reveal representational forms. His mixed media paintings instill memories of nature, urbanity and humanity – prescribed within the visually active spaces and layers of reflective metal, static imagery and abstract paint.
Brian resides in Calgary when he is not travelling or spending time at his Stonewater studio in Winderemere. He has exhibited in several solo shows, group exhibitions and collaborative charitable endeavors and his work is held in numerous private and public collections.
