Brian Cypher is a self-taught artist living and working in the Skagit Valley. Shortly after moving to Anacortes when he was 15, he established an art studio and began painting. Since then Cypher has shown his work throughout the United States and Europe. His artwork is based in formal abstraction that pulls from a multitude of sources including automatic drawing, observing nature and Abstract Expressionism. He finds his imagery through the process of drawing, material investigation and an open-ended approach to allow for a constant flow of ideas, tangents, and detours to occur in the work. Cypher works primarily with drawing, painting and printmaking. His work was recently added to the permanent collection of Microsoft.
