Glenn Brown

Glenn Brown is a British artist. He was born in 1966 in Hexham, Northumberland. Glenn Brown grew up in England and attended the Norwich School of Art and Design followed by the Bath School of Art and Design where he earned his bachelor's degree.

Glenn Brown appropriates images by living, working artists, such as Frank Auerbach and Georg Baselitz, as well as paintings by historical artists, such as Salvador Dali, Guido Reni and many more.

Glenn Brown has been a solo artist featured in galleries around the world. And most recently in the Gagosian Gallery in New York City. In 2000 he was shortlisted for the Turner Prize.

Qualifying his process, Brown remarks, “It’s often difficult to recognize what the paintings were based on because so much of the original has been changed, or tiny parts of a particular painting have been used and then altered very dramatically.”
