Brian Wolfgang Becker

Digital capture & creation using cell phone cameras, PC laptop computers & associated software applications programs

My creative background began with post secondary studies at B.C.I.T., David Thompson University Center and the Sheridan College School Of Visual Arts followed by a year of commercial portfolio development with a focus on fashion, people, travel and sports. Based in Toronto and Vancouver, my photography assignments over 12 years had me working across Canada and internationally for numerous clients in the consumer magazine industry, advertising industry and in corporate communications retiring from that industry in 1997.

In 2005, well into the digital revolution, I began to explore PC’s and computer software leading me to the creation of new works that were MS Paint software based and eventually creating a number of illustrations, digital paintings and geometric based visual art works between 2006 and 2019. In 2012, I obtained my first smart phone camera to begin creating imagery that is more impressionism than realism as I strive to create more of a dreamscape than a reality through my interpretive art work that is often focused on mostly natural elements. Our landscapes and waterways have been my place of greater connection to subject matter to feel the subject rather than see it as we all more commonly do.

My works can be viewed through me in person, through NorthVanArts.ca, the Bookstore at Blurb.ca as well as through my personal website at https://www.brianwolfgangbecker.com
