Brian Slawson

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. In 2006, The Grand Canyon Association purchased Brian’s painting titled “Canyon Magic” for their permanent collection.

Brian was influenced at an early age by artistic parents and the works of the old masters. He is a self taught artist. He exhibits regularly in the Oil Painters of America's regional and national shows. Brian has received awards from the Oil Painters of America and the Arts for the Parks among others. Brian paints both rural and urban landscapes but is also comfortable painting still life.
