 Feedback on the Art Branding 101 Workshop:

  • "I honestly feel like ArtIstheBrand was heaven sent. One week ago I was literally googling "PR for artists," desperately in search of someone with a professional insight that could help take my artwork to the next level. I was on the verge of hanging up my hat, and BOOM I accept an invitation to a career-changing workshop... Art Is The Brand Artist Workshop. i cannot say enough great things about's a workshop meets best-artist-friends pow-wow lol. My only critique is the fact I have to wait an entire month before the next one, I am hooked & need more knowledge sooner than that lol!

    On a serious note, thank you so much for recognizing & filling such a critical void in the art world. You & your ideas + expertise are so necessary."

  • "Art Branding 101 with Bryant was super informative, going through his workshop and answering tough questions helped me realize that I really can be a working artist making a living, instead of a starving artist. I am really excited, I can't wait until the next session!"

ART is the BRAND was created to help Artists, Curators, Gallerists and Creatives grow their brands.  After more than 20 years in the Marketing Industry, working for, managing and creating Brands and Campaigns for companies like Nielsen, Viacom, Electronic Arts, Apple, HTC, PepsiCo., Unilever, Proctor & Gamble, Kraft Foods, Comcast, TNT, Sony Pictures, Diageo Brands as well as non-profit Associations and Start Ups, I understand what it takes to build business.  Now, while growing in the Art Industry, by trial, error, and great successes, I've learned that there's a huge gap in what it means to be "successful in ART".

This is why "ART is the BRAND" was created.
