For over 30 years, Brad Wieland has been a commercial photographer and graphic designer. His most recent passion is for acrylic paintings, which borrow heavily from his lifelong study of shape, color, texture, shadow & light.
Self-taught, Brad is drawn, primarily, to abstract & impressionistic work with an occasional, somewhat-representational piece thrown into the mix. His recently-started art blog explores his discovery of new techniques, new artists & general inspiration for the aspiring artist. Currently, Brad’s original work is done with acrylics on stretched canvas panels and gessoed watercolor paper.
Earlier in life, Brad worked alongside his father and brothers to help establish a well-known contract furniture manufacturing company called Wieland Furniture. His work within that organization included marketing, graphics, photography and branding. Before that, he operated a recording studio and two small advertising agencies. In 1998, when Wieland Furniture was sold, Brad established another company called Studio A Inc, producing commercial design & photography. His photographs have been published in almost 30,000 publications around the world.
