About
Studio Member since 2010

b.1972

Brian Reed’s art practice is guided by his inquisitive nature. The contemplative quality of his artwork extends a feeling of intimacy to the viewer, as we observe the result of his exploration of the people who inspire him and the animals that intrigue him.

“It makes me happy because I like working with my hands. I like the way I use them. I like being with people while making art. I have so many friends from here.”

Reed experiments fearlessly with materials and continually welcomes new challenges. This is most evident in his three-dimensional works constructed with a variety of mediums. The resulting forms are at once brutal and elegant. His affinity for acquiring new skills extends to teaching. Reed is a member of the agency’s educator track, and teaches art skills in a variety of settings. 

“I enjoy learning because I want to grow. I like being with the kids. They’re so cute! I like working with them and seeing them grow.”

Reed’s artwork has also been featured on agency merchandise, including the 2021 calendar.
