Join us as we welcome Gabriel Welch back to Black Hammer Brewing's art wall.
Gabriel lives and works in San Francisco when he is not on the road painting at transformational festivals around the world. He was born into an artistic family and is one half of the artist duo, The Welch Brothers. Their father was a muralist and sign painter and their mother and oldest sister started a clowning business. As children, sketchbooks, Legos and costumes from their family's clowning business supplied an endless amount of entertainment. Their father sold comic books and toys at the local flea market and this would serve as an inspiring force for the years to come. The colorful world of comic books can be seen throughout much of the two brothers work. Comics, graffiti and fine art eventually began to melt together into the style you see today.
Although the two brothers took time to cultivate their own unique styles, they would often work together throughout the course of their lives. Their individual styles combine seamlessly to create works unlike anything else that has been seen in the past. From impressionistic animals to abstract worlds that look as though they could be created with computers, The Welch Brothers continue to push the boundaries of traditional art. They have struck out on a grand adventure together with no path to follow, paving a walkway into the unknown.
Gabriel's colorful, thought-provoking, and often surreal art is a pleasure to behold, and we at Black Hammer Brewing are excited to welcome back one of our favorite artists.
