Bret Philpot

Los Angeles-born Bret Philpot creates acrylic based paintings that visually ride the fence between organic earthiness and urban aggression—a contradiction he embraces. His themes can range from personal spirituality to organized religions to political injustice.

And Bret has a lot going on beyond his desert studio. Whether boldly painting live at a music festival in front of a few thousand people or photographing graffiti in Damascus, Syria, he lives life in full volume. Perhaps the Desert Sun said it best: – “Stale, boring or common are three words you will never hear associated with Philpot’s paintings.”
