BIO

Bryan Beyung est né à Montréal d’une famille de réfugiés, cette double culture l’a amené à créer dans un souci de se construire et de se définir. Diplômé en design graphique, il s’est familiarisé au monde du numérique et à la vitesse des nouvelles technologies. Conscient des possibilités infinies de ces médiums, il se méfie cependant de leur mécanicité préférant l’intuitivité que lui permet une démarche picturale plus abstraite aux compositions largement influencées par son passé de graffiteur. Il crée des compositions déstructurées et dynamiques, où la liberté du geste rencontre la précision de la technique. Entre figuration et art abstrait, explosions colorées et espaces vides, art formel et design graphique, la force de ses œuvres s’inscrit dans une constante dualité.

“Bryan Beyung was born in Montreal, among a refugee family. This marriage of culture allowed him a sense of creation driven by the will of self-definition. Bachelor in graphic design, the artist started growing within the fast-paced world of digital technologies. Even though he is aware of the infinite possibilities these tools present, he remains careful concerning their mechanisms, preferring intuitive methods allowing for a deeper sense of abstract picturing – an influence taking roots in its past as a graffiti artist. He creates unstructured and dynamic compositions; the concept of freedom of expression meets precision with his technique. Between figurative and abstract art, he’s fills an empty spaces with a burst of colors and graphic design, the strength of his work is in this constant duality”.
