Glenn Brown


Glenn Brown is a British artist known for his use of art historical references in his paintings. He starts with reproductions from other artist’s works to then transform them by changing its colour, position and size. Brown’s unique iconography is augmented by his virtuosic artistic technique.In fact, the works appear to be painted with a thick impasto but are actually executed through the application of thin and swirling brushstrokes to create the amusing illusion. The result is grotesque yet fascinating.

Brown’s extensive exhibition history includes shows at the Serpentine Gallery, London (2004), the Kunsthistorisches Museum, Vienna (2008), and the Tate Liverpool, UK (2009). His work is included in such major museums as the Centre Pompidou in Paris, the Art Institute of Chicago, and the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis. In 2000, the artist was nominated for a Turner Prize, resulted in an exhibition at the Tate Britain in London.
