About the artist:

Bri Cirel’s oil paintings combine bold text and graphic design with photo realistic imagery referenced from commercial culture and art history. Using a multiple stage method masking, painting in oil, and layering, Cirel creates dynamic interactions between text and imagery that can be viewed in a variety of visual experiences and challenge how visual information is prioritized. 


Bri Cirel was born in Redlands, CA in 1982 and received a BA in Film from California College of the Arts, Oakland in 2005. Cirel has exhibited throughout the US and is represented by Parlor Gallery, New Jersey and Krause Gallery in Manhattan, NY.

Public Collections include Pen + Brush Gallery, New York, and Awards include

the Alan Herrick Media Arts Award.

Cirel currently lives and works in Los Angeles, CA.
