Captivating Collection of Oil Paintings by Brian Mashburn
A lonely, misty, dystopian, urban and industrial landscapes have found their alive reflections in oil paintings of Brian Mashburn. Firstly you see nobody, nothing but the solitude and silence. The Artist shows us how does look like the urban spirit: quiet, foggy, mystic, slippy. Humanity does not exist, just the forgotten decorations of life in its perfect existence.
But still, there are some creatures that still are interested in silent urban dystopian. Those are the animals and the vegetation. Seems that they are the ones who actually care about the destiny of those lonely spirits of the city, looking over them through the mist…
The author of those dystopian landscapes is Brian Mashburn from Asheville, North Carolina, where he lives and works.
Brian above all likes to work with an oil. He pays a scrupulous attention to every detail to engage the viewer and tell him his story. The inspiration for the layers of mist in his work comes from his Asian-American heritage.
The cities that Brian depicts are the cocktail of the classic, modern and industrial architecture. A perfect blend that turns them into one global, fascinating and futuristic city.
