Kettle Art proudly presents artist Brad Albright in his first ever solo show, ‘Albright, Albright, Albright’. The artist opening reception will be held on Saturday, July 23, 2022, 6 to 9 pm.
Brad Albright is Dallas-based artist and freelance illustrator best known for his modern approach to old school 3D poster art with red/blue glasses. His drawn artwork celebrates a shared love of pop-culture, music and gaming while presenting them in novel ways that utilize interactivity, dimensionality, and nostalgia to blur the line between fine art and accessible fun.
His work is infused with a traditional printmaking background, but applied through a modern illustrators toolkit; producing detailed line art with ballpoint pen, digital tablet, and a range of software, printers, laser and die-cutters. Both designed and presented with paper glasses, Brad’s 3D work seeks to engage and invite viewers into immersive scenes… accessible and familiar on the surface, but revealing deeper layers of story, detail, and intrigue upon closer inspection.
Brad was born in Orlando before settling in North Texas. He earned his BFA in Combined Media at Cornell’s College of Architecture, Art, & Planning and later attended Hartford Art School’s low-residency MFA in Illustration program while simultaneously working full-time in Dallas as a graphic designer, licensed merch designer, art teacher, and Etsy shop owner.
Clients include Live Nation, Dallas Stars, Dallas Mavericks, Texas Rangers, Dickies Arena, comedian Marc Maron, Stern Pinball, Texas Pinball Festival, KXT 91.7, and Austin City Limits Music Festival. Kettle Art has been Brad’s self-described home base since circa 2011, and he is proud to return after a brief hiatus (ahem, pandemic) for his first solo show with ‘Albright, Albright, Albright,’ sharing recent work and greatest hits, from 3D poster art to dimensionally layered woodcut illustrations and local event posters.
This show runs through Sunday September 4, 2022. Kettle Art Gallery is located at 2650-B Main St. Dallas, TX. 75226.
