Brian M. Viveros

The internationally famous artist Brian M. Viveros has an unmistakable hand. His very detailed paintings with brave roe-eyed beauties provoke a poetry of persistence. Beautiful but barbaric, they draw on the power of the feminine and its reconciliation of fragility, beauty and power. His subjects are fighters and survivors, flawlessly made and so bloodstained that they remind us that they are mighty enemies. The artist’s portraits show cult, worthy heroines who emerge triumphant from battle, complete with cigarettes, tattoos and wounds to compete with those of any soldier. They are steel-hard champions made with something of the sublime. Viveros’ work highlights the iconography of the femme-fatale as a strong symbol of strength and punishment: disobedient beauties.

As a technical perfectionist, Brian Viveros’ oil, airbrush, acrylic and ink paintings are highly filled with pigments, brightness and depth, while his paintings are pointed and simple. The artist’s focus is more on focus points such as eyes, lips and skin, which communicate the finesse of small expression and the power of the radiant gaze. The paintings feel cinematic because they give a suggestive impression of narrative and the iconic nature of their motifs. The artist’s creative universe is beautifully designed, never derived and clearly recognizable as his own.

Work and exhibitions:

The recognition and exhibition of Viveros was promoted by his participation in a large group exhibition in Switzerland in 1997. Since then, Viveros’ works have been widely exhibited in North America and Europe and presented at numerous international trade fairs. Most recently, Viveros’ exhibition “War of the Roses” was sold out as a solo show for Art Basel Miami by the “Thinkspace Gallery” in Los Angeles.

The paintings of Brian M. Viveros were published largely in print. In addition to his painting, Brian M. Viveros has expanded his practice to include film. His short film Dislandia, which made its debut in 2005, deals with the hopeless, dreamy world of a disturbed young girl. The surreal psychodrama is packed with images from the bizarre to the symbolic, exploring a calmly mysterious eroticism. “Southern”, Viveros’ first full-length surreal film, is also a highly stylized exploration of primal impulses that disturb eroticism and violence. The artist and the Dislandic crew were shown behind the scenes to watch the making of the film on Sundance Channel’s “Pleasure for Sale”. Other recent films are: “Tercio De Muerte” and minor eleusinian secrets. Viveros’ cinematic work captures something strangely powerful and symbolically disturbing from the depths of our tense psyche, but holds us captive by an undeniably seductive urge to carry on.
