About the Artist

Brian W. Tryon

Brian TryonMy photos and works of art are a slideshow of the weird, wonderful and spiritual side not only of Colorado, but wherever my journey takes me. While shooting stills, I started wondering, how I could transform them into works of art? I then discovered the process of photo transfer which really inspired me. I began transferring my photos onto wood. Starting with an original photo, I transfer it using Mod Podge or Matte Gel medium onto reclaimed wood or raw panels. Next I embellish it with a variety of mediums such as spray paint, sharpie marker, paint pens, oil and acrylic paint, dyes, food coloring and stains. Whatever feels right at the moment, or whatever materials inspire me. Each piece is sealed with Polyurethane. I feel this adds depth and makes the colors very intense. My love for photography, art music and fly fishing brought me to this point in my art journey, and I feel I am at the beginning. I encourage people to support their communities and the art in it. I am also a freelance photographer, currently contributing to the Colorado Springs Independent.
