Brian Kirhagis (born 1983 in Baltimore, MD) is a self taught artist known for depicting current events and social issues, using art as a tool to shed light where there is darkness. He creates complex compositions utilizing space and form by weaving together multiple visual planes. These striking pieces allow the viewers mind to decipher several images while simultaneously following a broader story within the same piece.

After graduating in 2005 with a B.F.A. in Graphic Design, BK decided to focus on his dream instead of working on someone else’s. He started his own company and worked around the clock, driven by the fear of having to get a “real” job and losing the ability to work on his art freely. BK would design and paint, switching back and forth from mac to canvas at a fervent pace. The line between artist and designer blurred as clients became collectors. The studio transformed into a factory and he used the money to invest and focus on his art. By March 2007, BK was able to begin pursuing a career as an artist full time.

This concept has always struck a chord deep within the fibers of my body, and serves as a source of inspiration for my work.
Artists are a rare breed; blessed with a unique talent to formulate our thoughts into images. It with this gift that I attempt to create a collective reality through my paintings; if by providing the image I can help ignite a thought, then maybe our reality can change.
