Los Angeles-based artist Brendan Lynch (b. 1985) is known for employing a range of media including graphite, aluminum on wood, and spray-paint to install his artworks. His youth was a kaleidoscope of graffiti and animation, inspiring him to synthesize high and low cultural aesthetics in his varied practice. Using nontraditional materials such as potato chips, cigarette ash, toenail clippings, and surf wax, Lynch manipulates objects in their truest form. The resulting works are physically and metaphorically layered, antagonizing preconceived notions of taste and class.
Lynch earned his BFA In 2009 from the Education School of Visual Arts and continued on to receive his MFA from New York City’s School of Visual Arts in 2011.
