BIO

Oil Painter: Video Artist: Los Angeles, CA

BFA: Film/Media: California College of Arts

 

Bri Cirel 

 

Bri Cirel’s oil paintings combine photo realism with text and graphic design. Using a multiple stage method of masking, painting, and layering, Cirel’s work has been described as a “visual puzzle”. Cirel explains, “I use text in my paintings to deliver commentary while also utilizing the font's graphic qualities to distort or contain imagery.”

With an emphasis on bold graphic design, Bri’s influences include advertisement, punk music, and cinema. Her work often examines art history and addresses social politics. 

While Cirel is mostly known for her oil paintings, she also produces low budget music videos and independent art shorts for established and emerging artists.
