Brian Reinker

"My work is fuelled by my interest in landscapes, urban environments and colour theory, often based on Op-Art and abstract themes. My collage technique uses linear elements, repetition, colour, texture and optical illusion to create images of real and imagined places. Best of all, I love what I do."

Earth Elements 2, 2020 - Collage 75 x 75 cm

Working in the language of landscape, topography and architecture, Brian Reinker’s colourful abstractions depict real and imagined places with the disciplined approach of an architect. His process has recently focused on collage using paper, foil and vinyl and other materials. These are cut and layered to create works that use colour, abstracted shapes and texture in a modern vocabulary. Based in Waterloo, London, Reinker gained his BA in Fine Arts and Architecture at the University of Cincinnati, Ohio USA and then studied at the Architectural Association in London. His work has been exhibited in a number of group and solo shows and he won the It’s Art Call competition in 2020. He has been selected by Saatchiart.com as one of 21 artists to collect in 2021. and his work is featured in a number of collections worldwide.
