Born in Santa Barbara, California, Brendan Monroe studied at Art Center in Pasadena. A sculptor and painter, his work consists of explorations of his ideas and dreams, translated into images of a familiar but unseen world. It’s this dual quality and the tension between the reality and surreality that gives them their power and allure.

“I think it’s important to constantly challenge oneself with new ideas and new mediums. My interpretations of the world are mostly rooted in science then executed through painting and sculpting. These are the best ways for me to communicate, but I always enjoy making other things as well.” Brendan Monroe
