My name is Brad Behnes. I am an American artist. My work is primarily oil paint but enjoy any type of medium. From New York City but currently I reside in Memphis TN and am a self taught artist.
I enjoy painting colorful custom portraits from your photos. I compose my portraits very close so it shows off everyone’s personality. Colorful and bold brushstrokes make it modern, fresh, and fun. I include a time lapse video of your personal commissioned portrait. My materials are of the highest quality and eco friendly. These works of art will last 100′s of years+. Because I have a day job I can offer my work at a very reasonable price. See the 6×6 mini portraits page for more details.
Trying my best to have a calm and peaceful life my observational subjects lean to a happier sub-conscience style with bold colors and luminous light. My current muses include garden life such as squirrels, robins, humming birds, bees and additionally -William Bouguereau.
The online galleries are of the artwork that I’ve done that I remembered to take a picture of. Feel free to browse the galleries of previous work.
I hope you enjoy them.
