Depicting distinct details of city life, Hollywood based artist Brandon Hurley implements elements of photorealism to create fantastical yet familiar paintings. Growing up in the San Francisco Bay Area, Hurley has maintained a strong influence from the California urban landscape in his artworks. His artworks are surreal in the sense that they take a theme or commonplace story and push them beyond what is expected.
Hurley is known for painting bundled shoes and other objects in near-photographic detail. His works show how being consumed by celebrity fashion has changed the tenor and texture of everyday life. The appeal of Hurley's work includes different takes on sneaker aesthetics, rendered in new compositions and beautifully detailed by hand. His technical skill makes you ponder the artist’s attention-focusing and impressive take on popular culture and ask us to reconsider the visual architecture.
