Brett Amory San Francisco
Originally from Virginia, Brett moved to San Francisco when he was 21 to study motion pictures at the Academy of Arts. Always being interested in art, Brett took his first drawing class while in school. It led to him starting to paint at age 24. He graduated from the Academy of Arts in 2005. Brett began working on the painting series entitled “Waiting” in 2001. At first, the series, depicted travelers waiting underground. But as the paintings evolved, the people ceased to be exclusively travelers, and began to emphasize figures selected from anonymous snapshots of city streets. Brett’s work on Sebastian Foster is from his Waiting series.
