Brian Gleckman has been painting for more than forty years. Born in Los Angeles, he trained under Don Lumbert at California State University, and later worked informally with Leopold Plotek in Montreal. In addition to his own studio work, Brian taught drawing, painting, and photography for thirty years. He is currently based in Vancouver, British Columbia.

Brian brings to his art a sensibility that is borne from his cultural identity, extensive study of art history, and an original application of visual interpretation. Influenced by – but not seeking to emulate - the works of Franz Kline, Mark Rothko, Afro Basaldella, and Emil Schumacher, Brian’s primary inspiration is to be found in the built environment and the design of written forms.

Brian’s work broadly focuses on the relationship between space, shape, and texture within the context of abstract visualization. His is an exploration that balances pre-considered composition with intuition, and marries intent - that is, vision of purpose - with spontaneity and improvisation. Brian’s paintings are often infused with a sense of movement and a deliberate degree of visual tension, prompting a reconceptualization of visual spaces and the relationships that result and exist within. Brian’s work reflects a rawness of interpretation that invites contemplation by discerning viewers and private collectors.
