Brian Slawson has been working
as a professional artist since 1992 both in the commercial and
fine art fields.
He is a Signature member of the Oil Painters of America.
In 2006 he devoted himself full time to fine art. Brian works
in oils in a contemporary realist style in which his primary
focus is on capturing the mood of the subject.
He is attracted to subjects that look as though they have
a story to tell, a history. I dont necessarily try
a specific story, I just want people to have the same curiosity

his work that has made Brian
a favorite among collectors. His work is in private, public and
corporate collections nationwide.

and national shows. Brian has received awards from the Oil Painters
of America and the Arts for the Parks among others. Brian paints
