Brain Despain

Brian Despain is an awesome artist. Or at least that's what I think.

He is an oil painter who believes that, "No matter the piece or the end result it's the art that we do for ourselves that wholly reflects us as people."

"As an artist, and a strong believer in the words penned above I revel in interpretations of my paintings and am continually amazed at the creativity of my audience. Telephone poles become crosses, numbers take on hidden meaning, robots become angels and fish are the reincarnation of gods...

All true, all valid, yet would those interpreters feel any different should I tell them that the pole was to fill a space, 12 was just an arbitrary number, and frankly, I just happen to really like painting fish?"
