In college, he studied drawing, photography and design, and now uses these skills while working as a freelance retoucher, illustrator, designer and artist in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
Soon after the purchase of a digital SLR camera in 2005, Brian became interested in the creation of images for the camera, using light as a brush or pen. The use of light as a tool for drawing, and a camera as a means to capture these movements - all this was a powerful experience for him as an artist.

Many Westerners consider Russian too "cutting his ear," but I find it unusual and fascinating. I attended several courses related to the Russian language at the University (language, culture, history ...), and each time the experience is increasingly penetrates into my work. In general, I have always been fascinated by symbols and language - it is simply a complex system of symbols.
