Brendan O'Connell
After graduating with degrees in philosophy and Spanish, Brendan moved to Paris to teach languages. There, at the age of twenty-two, he first picked up a pencil and began teaching himself to draw. He was inspired to quit his job to pursue full time art-making. He spent several years in Europe; winters learning to paint and doing portraits and caricatures in the streets during the summers. Having spent most of the ‘90s in Europe, Brendan returned to the United States and was struck by how much had changed in his absence. Inspired by Edward Hopper, Brendan wanted to paint everyday America at that moment of massive transition. He first looked through the lens of retail because it’s representative of society, and Walmart because it is the most democratic iteration. While Brendan was in Europe, Walmart had experienced its most rapid expansion. He painted shoppers and interior architecture and explored our fetishistic relation to brands. Brendan was profiled in The New Yorker and on CBS Sunday Morning, a guest on The Colbert Report, and featured in Time. He went from being the guy who was kicked out of dozens of Walmarts for taking pictures to being the guy who can set up an easel in any store in the world. His work is in the permanent collection of the Georgia Museum of Art and the High Museum of Art. He has executed commissions for both Walmart and HEB as well as a number of privately owned companies.
