Biography:

Brian Booth Craig (b. 1968; Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania) is a contemporary sculptor who specializes in bronze. Sculpting from life, his work translates classically derived figures into contemporary icons. His females nudes are imbued with a sense of agency. Mixing 21st century gestures with surprising talismans, his statues are very much of our time, despite the medium’s classical origins. Verist in nature, Craig’s figures capture moments of individual self-assertion. Brian holds a B.A. from Pennsylvania State University (1993) as well as an M.F.A. from the New York Academy of Art (2013) and is an Honorary Member of the International Sculpture Center (2013). A former apprentice and assistant of the painter and sculptor Audrey Flack, Brian also has extensive teaching experience, first as a professor of sculpture at the Lyme Academy College of Fine Arts (2004-2015) and at art workshops in the USA, Italy, Brazil, and South Africa. His work has been exhibited extensively in the United States and Internationally. Brian is represented by Louis K Meisel Gallery in New York City.
