Bryan Ida
(American, b. 1963)

Bryan Ida is an American artist who currently resides in Los Angeles. As a master mixing acrylic paints, epoxy and polyester, Ida shows his talent by applying unique material on forming abstract landscapes as a great play of color, light and composition. His work has been featured in dozens of museums. Notable recent shows are at Lancaster Museum of Art and History, Riverside Art Museum, Long Beach Museum of Art, Torrance Art Museum and Museum of Contemporary Art Los Angeles. His works is currently in Microsoft Corporate collection and Genencor International collection.

While previously working with the notable abstract expressionist, Sam Francis, Ida had developed his own language in abstract painting by creating depth and dimensionality of cities with rhythmic pattern. His recent series “Littoral” is one of the representative creation that well interprets the connection among cityscape with human memory.”Littoral” is defined as the zone where the land and sea come together and also a meeting place of disparate worlds where opposites collide and interact. Ida had extended the expression on landscape in urban city further to a more sentimental topic which focuses on the interaction among city, human, and nature.
