Brian Singer, is a San Francisco based fine artist whose projects have received international attention. His art ranges from intimate works with paper to large scale participatory projects.
Singer’s work can be viewed as a way of re-imagining the material life of books, words, and literature. Through patience and meticulousness, he cuts and assembles the pages of books to create geometric and symmetrical patterns. The result is a visual language that evokes a different type of reading and legibility.
For example: The 1000 Journals Project, launched in 2000, was turned into a book, a feature length documentary, and has been exhibited at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art and the Skirball Cultural Center in Los Angeles. The project was covered in The New York Times, San Francisco Chronicle, Wall Street Journal, Entertainment Weekly, Better Homes and Gardens and many others. More recently, he launched the provocative project TWIT Spotting, where photos of people using their phones while driving were placed onto Billboards in the San Francisco Bay Area.
Brian is also an accomplished graphic designer having created work for Apple, Adidas, SFMOMA, Facebook, Chronicle Books and many others. In addition to being recognized with numerous awards and publications, he has served as the president of the San Francisco chapter of AIGA, the professional association for design and taught at Academy of Art University.
