Brandt Peters is a self-taught illustrator and designer whose work has garnered international attention from the fine art gallery circuit. His paintings explore ancient cartoons, Victorian toys and pre-WWI vintage ‘Pop’ ephemera; all fodder from being raised by a family of artists and antique collectors. A world composed of creepy sideshow icons, deviant Animalia, and “masked” glorified cartoon alter egos. Although misfits on the surface, a sense of relation is understood: secret from the public, we are all misfits — hiding behind animated personas, odd and beautifully unusual. Brandt is based in New Mexico with his wife and partner, Kathie Olivas and his two dogs, Bailey and Diego.
