Coming from Nashville, Tennessee, artist Brian Tull uses both oil and acrylic paint to create photorealistic images that are heavily inspired by the style of the 1940’s and 50′s. “Born in 1975, the only option I have to remember the 1940’s and ‘50’s, is through my imagination,” said the artist. “I let my mind visit the people, their era, stories and photographs, then I translate my own narrative through painting. Headlights on a two-lane highway, sun rays through trees, trains on a rainy night. They come from small towns and large towns. I see paintings in folk songs from the ‘30’s, passersby on the streets, and in the gospel the preacher talked about on Sunday morning. Ideas for my paintings come from the past and present, from all things nostalgic.”
