Brian Driscoll grew up on a small sheep farm in rural Ohio. His grandmother, a school teacher, would bring home giant sheets of paper that she had used as the background for her bulletin boards for him. Sprawled out on his grandparent’s cellar floor between the shelves of canned tomatoes and jars of homemade peach jam, he would spend his weekends drawing on these makeshift canvases. Today, he works on the floor of his studio drawing on large rolls of paper much like he did as a child. The fine point pens he uses to create intricate ink on paper figure drawings are not that different from the Crayola markers he used when teaching himself to draw.
Brian received a BA in Visual Art from Columbia University. In 2018, he will receive his MFA in Painting and Drawing from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. His work has been shown nationally and has been collected internationally. He currently resides in Chicago, Illinois.
