Creating imagery that inspires the imagination, coupled with classic painting techniques, Brady Willmott’s unique twist on pop surrealism leaves a lasting impression. Willmott paints in oils and is based in Carlsbad, California. Born and raised in Vermont and having lived several years in the mountains of Colorado before relocating to Southern California in 2003, his connection to the ocean and nostalgia for the mountains are evident in his work. A strong imagination, dry sense of humor and recently retiring from a successful career as a tattoo artist also play a role.
A strong focus in art helped Willmott complete high school and led him to earn his BFA from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston in 1998.
