Brian Exton About

Brian is a digital artist who lives in the UK. He has created some wonderful work that has been referred to many times as "WOW". Brian's imagination brings art to a level not seen in other art. Spiritual and mystical aspects dominate his work. My interest in the arts began in the 70s when I attended college and studied Graphic Design. I also had a spell painting with oils using the Bob Ross method. He was a wonderful man, close to nature and a fantastic landscape and seascape artist and gave me a lot of inspiration which I still use in my art today. Sadly no longer here, he brought a unique style of oil painting to TV viewers in the US and other countries around the world with his half hourly painting classes. See the Bob Ross website. I became interested in digital art in the late eighties and early nineties first using the Amiga 500 computer. Although very slow in comparison with today's machines, some of the programs available at the time were capable of producing some good results. After gaining computer, art and some photography skills, my interest has grown where now I spend many hours creating designs that would have been near impossible years ago. As well as creating digital art, I also enjoy capturing digital photos of landscapes, coastal scenes, villages, historic buildings and monuments etc. Many of my photos are taken of the Isle of Wight. A beautiful place I've had an association with since I was a child. My work is a demonstration of how art and technology can come together and be used to express the imagination of the artist.
