Bryan Hible – born in Sheffield, England in 1965, and now living and working in Nottingham – has been painting in acrylics for over twenty five years and produces work in a realist style. He has a very eclectic range of subject interests, with modern still-life and portraiture perhaps dominating.
After many years of ‘hobby’ painting, considered by Bryan to be his art education, he began painting full-time in late 2009 and is quickly establishing a professional reputation, having work accepted into various exhibitions around the UK. His paintings have sold around the world and are now being sought after by collectors.
Bryan accepts commission work, as time allows, and is currently working on various personal projects, predominantly the series ‘Life’s a Game’, which depicts ultra close-up views of board games in progress. Due to the scale involved and the utilisation of dramatic lighting, which focusses attention on a small area, the viewer is transported into the game and is invited to see aspects of human life being played out on the game board.
