About

Born in the early 1990’s and raised mostly by woman in a small neighborhood in Queens, NY. Brian Paul Morado started out illustrating at the age of three. Majority of his techniques and styles were followed by watching his older sister. Her passion for great color selection and watercolors introduced him to painting. Throughout his middle school and early high school years, he became increasingly interested in painting on clothes and sneakers. Up until his last few years of high school, he geared towards customizing garments. Everything from sewing on additional fabrics to actually painting/dying these fabrics brought him into the world of fashion. After graduating, focus for painting diminished, while fashion grew full time. Accessories were his niche, such as eye-wear, handbags and limited edition pieces. Ironically, what led Paul back into art were graphic printed scarves. He began painting and illustrating once again. Researching past and present artist, he came across what he calls, “artist of influence” like, George Condo, Pablo Picasso and Dr. Theodore Seuss. It then dawned on him how impact and influential these artists were in his life. This sparked a chain of events leading Paul to purchase his first canvas. During painting sessions, music was a great tool for inspiration in his early works. Metaphors and misguided relationships later became primary for Mr. Morado point of views and references in his work. As more works produced, he eventually was granted opportunities to showcase his work at local venues, anything from, Libraries, lounges and galleries. After a couple of more years of painting, he renovated himself into a “brand artist” by leaping into the world of literature, creating children’s books and art books as well as incorporating his artwork on modern technology such as phone cases, playing cards and clothing. In conclusion, continuously progressing in the field of art he hopes to one day influence those who are in the generations to come.
