BrianStudio is owned by artist, Brian Davis, and he is the talent behind the gorgeous murals and paintings that the studio creates. You probably have recognized some of his magnificent murals around town such as on the outside of the Wifi Wine Bar & Shoppe!
A. A creative service company providing fine art (my first passion) to public art.
A. There really was no vision; just an attempt to do what I’m gifted in doing and my attempt to make it into a business of creative expression. Since then, I’ve never really worked a day in my life.
A. A few years back when Andres Duany was brought in to revamp the scene in downtown/uptown HP, I brokered a space for the first of my murals with local French Interiors owner William Thorpe…and here we are.
A. As far as HP’s murals, the tree frog on English Rd was the first and is still one of my favorites – due to size and simplicity of the imagery.
A. I have great taste in music! That, at one time in my life, when I was in a desperate state of depression and emptiness, it was then that I made myself a vow to make a living doing what I love to do – or die trying. There was no plan B.
A. Dorothy Darr and Ryan Saunders are the two that were the catalysts for my entry into the city’s birthing of murals and public art during the Ignite High Point campaign years ago.
A. I don’t know that I have an answer for this one, other than to say whatever inspiration hits me at the moment. If I could coordinate it all, I want the tallest, most prominent building here!
A. The highlights are the reactions from the people I talk to and how it makes me feel seeing my work on display.
Challenges always include wind (I seriously dislike wind when I am trying to paint murals!) and my current skill level limits me to what I render versus what I wish to render.
A. Well, it has more color than before! Seriously, I believe HP now has some momentum and more openness to public art and creativity at large.
A. With open arms! They love the color coming to their city.
A. That we are now in a time and place, with the right people in positions of influence, to really establish the creative desires that many have had for so long to see in their city.
A. 1. Consider being a part of a vision bigger than yourself. 2. Invest in the city of HP your time and resources and hopes. 3. Dare to believe YOU could be the next big addition to the puzzle!
A. I actually visit most of them; but I have had a long history with DeBeen Espresso.
A. I do enjoy a weekly trip to East Coast Wings on South Main (especially on Monday nights during football season). The staff are great there.
A. Depends on what I want at the time. I don’t have a “place”.
A. The High Point Visitors and Convention Bureau, which is neither a company nor business, is worthy of my praise for all they do and the people that work there. I would have to mention Red Egg, because I have known Carol Gregg for years and admire her. Miro Buzov’s Penny Path Crepe and Cafe is a great story that continues to be written. Plus the people of Mill Collective for their community focus and vision.
