Past Artist In Residence
Mixed media and digital artist Denis Brun makes avant-garde pieces concerning heroism and non-heroism that push the limits of the viewer. The video Overman was product of a collaboration through 18th Street Arts Center and EZTV (2006), and took part in the show, Hacking the Timeline: EZTV, Digilantism, and the L.A. Digital Arts Movement, presented by 18th Street Arts Center that same year. The artist cites David Lynch and Bret Easton Ellis as major influences. With an air of foreboding and mystery, Brun draws skulls in freehand on newspaper; creates intriguing digital art designs and collages meant to rattle the cage. He most recently exhibited work at Galerie Le Haut de L’Affiche in Marseilles, France.
