Brandon Gunn received his BFA from Brigham Young University in Utah, MFA in printmaking from Illinois State University, and Tamarind Master Printer certificate from Tamarind Institute in New Mexico. Brandon has previously taught printmaking at Illinois State University, Santa Fe Community College, Concordia University (Montreal) and Brigham Young University Idaho. Brandon now works collaboratively with world-renowned artists and institutions to create fine art lithographic editions for public and private collections in addition to his own artistic practice. Brandon's work is constantly influenced by his love of Nature and the power of the mundane, namely the simple objects residing in his home and studio. He is particularly interested in the unique and varying qualities of individual perception through direct experience and its contribution to the development of significance in our lives. Brandon has recently completed work on a grant with the Social Sciences and Humanities Council of Canada exploring the relationship of the digital matrix and copyright to current issues in printmaking. Brandon currently lives in Bloomington, IN and teaches printmaking at Indiana University as a Visiting Assistant Professor.
