Born in 1947, Brian Wyers lives and works in Scarborough, ON. 1987, Brian showed the 65 faux finishing and specialty paint techniques he had learned at the Day Studio of California for the International Interior Design Exposition at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre. An immediate success, he went on to paint finish some of Toronto’s most famous landmark buildings and for some of its more prestigious inhabitants. To this day, he retains a reputation of diverse abilities, design skills, and colour acuity.
Brian has spent the last 25 years living days with a paint brush in his hands. During the last 20 years he enjoyed a career of window dressing and trade show exhibition, working freelance, mainly in the Yonge/Bloor/ Yorkville area and for department stores, such as Eaton’s, Holt Renfrew, and the Bay. He became known for his innovation and trend setting styles.
In the mid-sixties, Brian studied Architecture at Ryerson, and had the honour of having his renderings displayed at trade shows to represent the school.
From an early age, he painted canvases that he sold privately, and at his first public showing in 2005 at the Toronto Art Expo, he received tremendous accolades and invitations to show his work in Canadian and U.S. galleries.
Now he has culminated these skills and created a body of work, mainly florals, that are large, colourful, and dramatic, in a look he refers to as “Powerful Serenity”.
Avid collectors liken his work to that of Georgia O'Keefe. Brian Wyers is represented in Ottawa, ON by Koyman Galleries.
