Bryan Haynes is fast becoming one of Missouri’s most renowned fine artists. His approach to the landscape is distinctly his own—pure, romantic and stylized. Not to mention he has a color sense that can ratchet up anyone’s perception of color. His work is grandiose, and makes one feel humbled within the great design of nature. Shadows work magic in his paintings, turning entire fields into deep red blacks with patches of fire breaking through in critical spaces. He loves all of the seasons equally. And he has learned much from his personal studies of American illustrators, like Norman Rockwell and Maxfield Parrish. As well, Haynes’ work shares affinities with the WPA style of the 1930s, giving us a kind of stylistic, heroic approach to what we see.
Bryan's commercial work has graced the pages of national magazines, international advertising campaigns, CD covers, posters, and book covers from Agatha Christie to the cover of “Scarlett” the sequel to “Gone With the Wind”. Since graduating of the Art Center College of Design in 1983 his artwork has been represented by Bernstein & Andriulli in New York, Ron Sweet in San Francisco, and Foster Represents in St. Louis.
