Doug Brannon lives in the Outer Banks of North Carolina, painting abstracts with watercolors, acrylics and oils. He grew up as a military kid and experienced a wide spectrum of arts from the early sculptures and mosaics of ancient Greece and Biblical lands, to European museums and American folklore and regional art.
Brannon’s early career was working as a therapist, teacher and student counselor at a university, with a keen eye to the arts. Inspired by Abstract Expressionists like Rothko, Pollock, and Guston, he applies representational concepts in creating paintings, tapping into the emotional and psyche responses of the viewer. Brannon is co-founder of the Post Millennium New York School with artists from fourteen countries and a specific interest in Abstract Expressionism.
