Brant Friesen is a Canadian West Coast Marine Artist who resides in Coquitlam, British Columbia.
Brant’s distinctly styled oil paintings and drawings tell every day stories, most of which that take place on the waterways of the South Coast, the Gulf of Georgia and the West Coast of Vancouver Island. All of the pictures are based on plein air drawings and paintings that capture the mood of the moment and set the scene for the story that is told.
There are stories of people who spend their working lives on the water and stories of people who are drawn to the water for recreation and relaxation. For the most part these are modern day stories; which means you can visit the locations today and be in the picture by actually participating in the activities or taking them in as Brant does when he is drawing and painting.
We hope you enjoy your visit to Brant Friesen Marine Art.
