Brian Tepper was born in Philadelphia on November 13, 1969. His first significant investigation in the creative process occurred in a finger painting when he was just a child. From that moment on, his studies have expanded from Saturday classes at The University of the Arts, to a BFA from School of Visual Arts in 1992, to an MPS from Pratt Institute in 1996, up until today where he continues his studies at The Art Students League in NYC.

It was in paint where his delight was first realized. Working in oils, latex and enamels: environments were created in which one could be fused with the work, live within the imagery, the movement and the forms. His intention was to create a world of passion, which he found in 1997 in a piece of stone. “That hard impenetrable piece of earth held a piece of the artist.” Carving in stone is a captivating, convoluted and challenging material to work; a catharsis occurs which then fuels the creative process unlike all other forms of expression.

Brian’s work is the persistent exploration of form and movement, bringing the stone to life, to let it breath, to impact the setting in which it occupies. He utilizes the technique of Direct Carving. “The forms must emerge from within the stone. The piece is complete when it speaks to the essence of the soul.” The artist loves the work and wishes to carry on his journey for many years to come.
