We are more than excited to welcome back artist Brett Amory who was recently named Visual Artist of The Year by the San Francisco Chronicle!
For his 3rd RUN with us Brett has brought us 10 original paintings on masonite. Each of these Lil' Homies are one of a kind original paintings that continue with Brett's acclaimed Waiting series.
"These pieces are the same idea as my work with the Waiting series, they are just these random snapshots of the people that I see when I am out. They are a bit more of portraits, while the other Waiting pieces are a bit more landscape. It still falls into the Waiting series with the same concepts, these are just a little smaller. I wanted to make them a little bit more accessible for people that like my work.
The series is ongoing, I am at about 60 so far and there will be 10 available here on 1xRUN. I don't really have a plan on ending it any time soon. Each piece takes about an hour and a half, which is pretty short compared to some of my other pieces." - Brett Amory

ABOUT Brett Amory:
Born in Chesapeake, Virginia in 1975, Brett Amory is descended from a long line of visual artists and musicians. He studied at the Academy of Art from which he received a BFA in Fine Art in 2005 and was recipient of two major awards given by the school: The Student Choice Award for 2004 and Second Prize in landscape painting for 2003. He is the recipient of a gold medal from Online Artists Interviews, an international juried art competition (2009). He graduated from the Academy of Arts in 2005. Brett began working on the painting series entitled “Waiting” in 2001. The series depicts the urban individual’s yearning for presence and the seeming impossibility of attaining it. The paintings portray commuters in transit immersed in either a quiet, even hopeful state or, alternately, an anguish of unfulfilled anticipation.
