Artist Bryan Boutwell (Featured Live Painter) July 1st 2015 at WormHole DJ Music Showcase. Wormhole takes place in San Francisco and Oakland CA. "It's an evening party fused with Music and Art. Dub Step, Trap, Hip Hop, and other genres of DJ Music spin throughout the evening while artists paint to the sounds that are created. The crowd is alive, the music pumping, the visuals both digital and organic, and the mood amped and amourously contagious. I love paintiing to music. My brush finds the map in the rhythm. The movement in the Bass creates the spacing between strokes.
Piano Keys Mixed Media Sculpture #1 is an abstract piece of modern art by artist Bryan Matthew Boutwell. I'd wanted to take apart a piano for some time now, so I could use the parts to create a sculpture. I was blessed one morning when discovering that a stand up piano had been left outside on the curb directly in front of my warehouse live/work space. A wonderful homeless guy helped me drag it into the parkinglot, and I quickly grabbed my tools. It was a long day but an exciting one.
Miles Davis Blue Jazz Painting by artist Bryan Boutwell. I wanted to create a large scale 6FT x 6FT painting of my all time favorite Jazz musician 'Miles Davis'. I used a mixture of silhouette and abstract in order to show his image and the feeling that his Jazz creates in me while I listen to it. I used both oil and acrylic in the process of this painting to create a depth unachievable by the use of just one medium. This painting is currently available for purchase at The McLoughlin Art Gallery located at 49 Geary St.
Iconic San Fran is the title of this abstract painting of the Golden Gate Bridge created by artist Bryan Boutwell. I was commissioned to paint a large scale abstract of the Golden Gate Bridge for a client in the Russian Hill neighborhood in San Francisco. I built a diptych style painting that measured 8FT x 4FT. I first built the 2 custom stretchers and then stretched canvas over them as the medium. I wanted to create geometric shapes that interlocked like puzzle pieces, the way a bridge locks 2 separate pieces of land into one.
