About Brian Dennis

Brian Dennis specializes in painting the human form, and people surrounded by their particular worlds: the lighting designer with his collection of Victorian lighting instruments, the art collector with his favourite pieces, the novelist with her pen and the desk her carpenter friend gave her...

Brian's 'Portrait of Charlotte Weston' at the Marylebone studio of fashion label Weardowney was included in the Royal Society of Oil Painters 123rd Annual Exhibition at the Mall Galleries, and The Saatchi Burning Bright Exhibition at the Churchill Hotel

Education

I am largely self taught, obsessed with the study of classical portraiture techniques. Formally, I began my art career as a scenic artist intern for the Pennsylvania Shakespeare Festival after studying as a scenic artist at DeSales University. I came to London to study life drawing, illustration, and creativity in mediums at Central St Martin's in 1996.
