Brian Belott is an artist based in New York City. As Andrew Russeth writes, “Over the past two decades, Brian Belott has created series that are almost improbably diverse – effervescently coloured reverse-glass paintings, careful copies of children’s art, calculators adorned with rocks and shocking hits of coloured sand, books harbouring found photos. What unites them is a deep desire, and a rare ability, to thrill… Even when Belott is pushing visual delectation into realms that are gaudy and kitsch, you can sense a tender care underpinning his art… Belott also regularly stages out-of-left-field performances (often with collaborators), which can include Dada-quality nonsense vocals, madcap impressions, yodeling, or anything else that comes to mind. (There was that one time he lit his hair on fire.) He is relentless. Taking a step back and looking at his art as a whole, you get the sense of a pretty unusual thing: an artist building a whole alternate world from scratch, where calculators have become sumptuous ornamental objects, and children’s art is championed—a world, in other words, that is by turns joyous, psychedelic, and generous.”
