Brian Olsen - performance artist



About Brian

Brian began his performance art career as the one and only protégé of renowned performance artist, Denny Dent. Brian explains, "I have always been passionate about art and the energy it can release. My passion for painting, especially the challenge of portraits, grew from various roots - [from] photography in Hawaii, [to] landscape design in college. But it was Denny who put it all together for me. He [taught me to use] the SHOW part of the performance to drive home the real message of personal creativity. And, almost magically, letting the music and the audience drive the process to its dramatic conclusion."

Brian has taken this art form and made it his own with a unique visual style, unveiling the spirit and charisma of his subjects. Brian conveys one compelling message to his audiences -

Everything is possible through creativity!
