Here at It’s Nice That we pride ourselves on knowing and keeping up with the majority of people doing amazing artistic things, but sometimes like a slap in the face in the dark, someone comes along who we’ve never heard of, with such a magnificent body of work it blows us away. Brian Scott Campbell came into our lives yesterday via The Fox is Black and, as you can see, he’s something rather special indeed.
Using strictly monochromatic graphite, Brian creates large, strangely surrealist images citing inspiration from Twin Peaks, ancient pottery and Brancusi sculptures. One of the sections on his site is entitled “words” and is simply a list of intriguing linguistic combinations which I felt was good enough to paste below. Enjoy!
