Sometimes a single line gets the job done. A technique using charcoal powder and water to create subtle washes in the background, the spontaneous line drawn over it.

"My work is often a quiet chaos. Most of the time it starts with loud, overpowering chaos, and over the course of time quiets."

Kurtis Brand Summer 2021

"Often, a coded and esoteric language appears in my work, a language that redefines a means of communication that shares feelings directly and unobscured that is received intuitively."

Kurtis Brand Today

"We have the tendency to always seek flowers instead of being content with the moment. It’s the nature of delusion, desire and opinions that hold us back from truly understanding ourselves."


On June 3 at 12:00, Guatemala was rocked by a devastating volcano eruption that affected directly or indirectly over 1.7 million people. Many died and even more were left homeless. This series was created out of the ash.

Things happen naturally if we allow them to happen and don’t judge them. Trying to live in wisdom, doing things to help others, and choosing awareness over egoic behavior are constants no matter what happens in the external world. The inward view is a constant, outward is out of our control. Yet they are the same. 
This practice comes first. The art comes second. I cannot fully commit to making art unless I am fully committed to meditation, mindfulness. It is no news that to live is to create. We are constantly creating new life, right down to our cellular structure.

The vision for our hotel was neutral and elevated. Kurtis Brand's work establishes a calmness within each piece which acts as a magnet to our guests. They are simply mesmerized.
