My Boyfriend’s Back

November 4, 2009

If it looks like a black and white photograph of a young, leather and
denim clad gent captured from behind, it could be just one of Brian
Boultons drawings.

A guru of graphite and pastel pencil, the Vancouver artist first
captures on film, then renders with photorealistic precision by hand the
fabrics, folds and features of young men standing unaware on the street.
While his treatment of the subject matter feels very "right now", with
its street fashion and paparazzi undertones, Boulton found his
inspiration, his own youth and trips to the skate park, years ago.

The art is all at once simple and complicatedjust like some boys we know.
