Brian Morgan lives in Chicago’s west-side neighborhood of Humboldt Park, where he creates rough and humorous images of life and politics in America.  His work discusses the economic divide between the rich and the poor, heavily draped in humorous satire. Morgan ventures beyond politics by delving into the maniacally diverse society of cyclists in the city of Chicago.  Blending india ink, thin monochromatic oils, and dramatic splashes of vinyl paint on wood panels, his signature style creates a motley cast of characters. From bike messengers, street vendors and fast flying track racers, to fat cat politicians, these paintings present the energy and love of a big city and a simple machine.
