Brian Hebets is a Marine Artist, born and raised in San Diego, California. Ever since he was a kid; he grew up in the 90’s graffiti era and studied everything from landscapes, animals and cinematography. All of which are the roots to his body of work. On top of studying Fine Art for over 25 years, he also has a degree in Media Arts and Animation from the Art Institute of San Diego where he studied Visual Effects for film.
He’s exhibited work in galleries throughout Southern California and all the way to Art basel in Miami. Teamed up with Non-profit organizations such as Pangeaseed Foundation’s Seawalls: Murals for Oceans, Surfrider Foundation and Cohort Collective painting large scale murals depicting today's Environmental and Marine life issues.
The Ocean is my Church. It provides me with the best opportunities to further study the fruits of Mother Nature up close and personal: lighting, colors, elements and marine life in their natural habitat. While I’m visually gaining knowledge and experiences from being offshore, it helps me drive the creative engine to further enhance and transfer that raw energy into my work.
