Anthony R. Brass is best known for his surreal "hand trees", capturing a coalescence of body parts into ecological entities. His work often seems to grow beyond the frame. He desires to enlighten peoples' lives and share the beauty the universe has to offer. Brass puts emphasis on a vibrant color pallet, surreal subject matter and shows illustrative tendencies. His work has been described as being very thought provoking in an uncanny, yet beautiful manner.
Brass spent his childhood creating art in Warren, Michigan. He later went on to obtain a degree in graphic design from Wayne State University in Detroit, Michigan graduating with Cum Laude honors. Currently, Brass lives with his inspiring partner Espacia Fotiu, (a mixed media expressionist) in their modest, plant filled studio in Ferndale, Michigan.
