Brendan Shea is an 18 year old artist from the United States. He got his start in drawing during his sophomore year of high school, and since then has become a self-taught illustrator and painter. When asked what inspired him to begin creating his delicate and beautiful pieces, Brendan said:
“When I started creating, I desperately needed an emotional release in my life, so I picked up art as a hobby. Now it’s so much more than a hobby… I’m very inspired by the human form and evoking emotion. [I’d describe my art as] fragile, emotional, and tender.”
