Brian Lindley

     Brian Lindley, a Salt Lake City native, comes from a long line of Utah artists. He began his career as a custom airbrush artist for local car and motorcycle shops and spent over a decade perfecting his skills. His talents have been recognized by the local airbrush community and he has won multiple awards including Best Airbrush Artist by Harley-Davidson of Utah (2012) and the Best Motorcycle Paint Award (2013) in the Utah Autorama. He has now focused his talents on airbrushing the incredible landscapes of Utah and Arizona on aluminum panels. Combining photo realism and fantasy, he creates fine art that brings a startling interpretation to these often painted and photographed scenes. The bright automotive paint applied with the sharpness of a micro fine airbrush introduces a new and edgy fusion of landscape and contemporary painting. Each piece is a freehand, one of a kind, unique work of art.
     "There is no other painting tool like an airbrush. I have experimented with all art mediums and I could not believe the possibilities that come with this tool. With a single airbrush you can paint from a hairline all the way up to a couple inches with one pass. Combined with the bright and heavy pigments found in automotive paint it creates a bright and bold painting like nothing else. Growing up in Salt Lake City I have always been inspired by the mountains of the Wasatch Front and the red sandstone cliffs of Southern Utah. Spending more than a decade of painting more extreme subjects on motorcycles and cars, it has been invigorating and a breath of fresh air (literally) to focus my work on the breathtaking landscapes of Utah and Arizona. I continue to paint cars and motorcycles where I can, but the majority of my career is now focused on these fine art paintings and exploring the southern desert regions for inspiration."
