Micah LeBrun is a self-taught artist who considers his understanding of art to be derived from what he visually identifies in everyday life. Developing a penchant for drawing at a young age he turned his attention to painting while he was still in his teens. Through the discovery and process of working with different materials he began to isolate a stylistic punctuation in the many mediums he created with. Early on, LeBrun's most profound influences were the cubist and line oriented works of Pablo Picasso, the bold graphic nature of Andy Warhol, as well as the dominant colorful brush strokes of Peter Max. Coupled with modern day movements such as car culture and graffiti, these influences meld with the artist's fascination of the natural design of insects, skeletal structure, reptiles and amphibians. LeBrun is a self-prescribed wanderer when it comes to his creative process as he believes each idea or intention possesses an individuality, which should be executed in its own medium and style so as to best relay each individual idea. This approach has resulted in stylistic deviations necessary in maintaining the artists continued interest in the creative process. While the artist's appreciation of design and fashion are evident in his figurative work, his love of portraiture has had a dominant presence throughout his career. Micah LeBrun has composed countless solo exhibitions throughout the US and internationally as far as Berlin. He currently lives and works in San Francisco, California.
