Bryant Small

Jersey City, New Jersey

Bryant SmallBryant Small is an abstract artist who works primarily in alcohol ink painting while balancing a career in social marketing and media in New York City. Bryant has a love of culture, color, and all things sparkling. In his art, he loves to toe the line of free abstraction with vibrant color blending and pushing beyond pretty. His alcohol ink pieces are free-flowing, unpredictable, and levitate from the page.

For Bryant it all started as a fun activity. “Let’s sit down and paint.” And with that short sentence, a reawakening and resurfacing of his love and passion for art emerged. After years of watching his mother, fellow artist, Diane Small-English flourish and grow in the Washington, DC, art community, Bryant jumped into the artistic abyss, constantly seeking new and interesting ways to develop his craft and master alcohol ink painting. He is driven by intense color contrasts, movement, and the need to make the mind spin through abstraction. According to Bryant, “art is life... artist life.”

Bryant has shown his work in several collective and individual shows in New Jersey and has pieces that are part of private collections around the world. He lives by the words, “Broken crayons still color... and a little glitter and sparkle NEVER hurt anybody!” Bryant is constantly creating and being inspired and sharing his work daily on Instagram @BFLY777.
