[print_gllr id=163]  Brian Hubble is an American painter, illustrator and practitioner of anti-art happenings. He is best known for his Outsider Art approach with dark collage illustrations for such publications as the New York Times, Harper’s Magazine, M.I.T. Technology Review and Psychology Today. In 2004, he collaborated with Yoko Ono through The Stranger, author of Under the Tuscan Sun Francis Mayes through Atlanta Magazine, and legendary rock band Guided By Voices through Cincinnati Citybeat. He has also taken part in many group shows in the United States and abroad. He currently resides in Brooklyn, New York. Hubble attended the Illustration Academy in the summer of 2002. He received a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Virginia Commonwealth University in 2001. In 1999, he studied painting at Edge Hill University in Liverpool, England before attending college at Christopher Newport University in Newport News, Virginia for studies in Latin and Biology. In 2005, Hubble was interviewed in Print Magazine for being one of 20 top international artists under 30 years old. He is also an annually visiting lecturer at the Illustration Academy in Sarasota, Florida. Brian Hubble’s paintings, drawings, photographs, video, and interactive experience blurs the line between reality and imagination, with a reminder to be wary of a culture constantly barraged with information. His work reflects satirical commentary on topics that have become a part of our society’s routine digestion. Subjects such as internet consumption, the media, politics, substandard healthcare, and social class prejudices are spared no lenience. Through allegorical approach, the artist perplexes, amuses, and provokes. The viewer must decide when truth is negotiated, and what underlying message is ultimately voiced. Many of his photo-collage illustrations deal with social injustice and human psychology. He has been called upon to visually explain topics from why different cultures hate one another (Yale University Alumni Magazine) to everyday life for children in third world countries (Johns Hopkins University). www.brianhubble.com
