United States | B.1995

American artist Dustin Brown paints the difficult scenes we see when we trawl into the depths of our memory. Through the subtle aesthetic of milky gradients and pastel objects, Brown references moments of tough transition during the making of our identity. Each painting comes to terms with life by making something positive out of it.

Recurring symbols in his work include a yellow flower, human appendages, and brown boots. Each with only four limbs, fingers, toes, or petals, Brown draws life in each object related to one another. His paintings explore human’s hunt for purpose and the obstacles that make them question their desire. In his exploration, Brown pinpoints the ups and downs of a person finding their way with his signature florid markers. Dustin Brown currently lives and works in Charlotte, North Carolina and has recently exhibited in Los Angeles, Hong Kong, and Beirut.
