Artists who use letters… Denis Brown…

In my opinion the best artist working in the field today.  I especially enjoy his mixed media pieces that incorporate letters, gold and silver leaf along with a really abstract design. He also does some great work in glass that involves layering of words that when compiled and laying on top of each other make a unique image.

Mr. Brown was born in 1968 in Dublin, Ireland. One of his favorite things to do as a young boy was to go and copy pages of an old biblical scripture. Each week the library turned over a new page. He went to London’s Roehampton School to further his study of calligraphy. His diploma there was in advanced calligraphy.

I highly recommend visiting his website as he has tutorials on different types of fonts and also please go to youtube and watch him perform magic. I love the bold and confident strokes he employs while writing!

This artist help me finally come up with my own unique signature.
