Nationally known Artist Bryan Sanders always loved creating art. Whether it was painting images of people, sculpting clay elephants, or building boats out of scrap lumber from job sites in the neighborhood, anything he touched turned into a completely different object than the one he started with. Early on, these talents were recognized and he was asked to produce work for the art museum in his hometown before his tenth birthday. It was no surprise when he won the Art and Creativity Award from his high school.

He went on to study and work with many artists in the area while he was attending university to get his degree in Fine Arts. His goal was to study the techniques of many of the famous painters in history as well as some of his famous artists. Along the way, he made his living helping people design amazing interiors for their homes that focus on adding objet d’art in new ways. He was featured in local newspapers and magazines for his designs for his clients and the beautifully tasteful home he shared with his partner.

“The Silly Selfie Project” has led to two art shows in Sanders hometown of Springfield, Missouri. Although he was featured in shows while at the university, none of them were on this scale. In September, Gailey’s Café/Gallery will host first display of“The Silly Selfie Project.” This show will showcase the first of the paintings and some of Bryan’s other larger pieces. Then in December his show will showcase all the “Silly Selfies”. After this they will be featured at the Springfield Art Museum.

“Bryan has chosen to use his artistic talents to find the fun in each person’s unique physical characteristics. We realized that the response has been overwhelming in the art world to this project. Bryan is the type of Artist that likes bringing Joy and Happiness to people lives and this shows in his art. We are honored that he has asked Jake to be part of this collection.” – Craig Rogalski , Managing Partner, CK Talent Management, Inc.
