Trey Bryan draws the city of New Orleans in his sketchbooks, paints pictures of her haunting light on canvas, and covers her walls with colorful murals. Exhibiting and selling his work at the Elliott Gallery on Royal street and at the Palace Art Market, Trey continues to draw inspiration from New Orleans.
Bryan received a BFA in Illustration from Ringling College of Art and Design in 2009, as well as a member of the Society of Illustrators in New York City. Shortly after graduating, he moved to Kansas City where he began an apprenticeship with Mark English, an American illustrator and painter. His drawings and paintings during his time in Kansas City included collaborations with The Kansas City Symphony, The Kansas City Chiefs, and The Lyric Opera.
While he has a base in New Orleans, Trey spends much of his time traveling out west, stopping on the side of the highway to paint and sell his landscapes for months at a time. Trey follows his passion wherever the artwork takes him. Whether it’s his latest commission, working with theme parks and museums, or filling one sketchbook after another with his writing and drawing, Trey is always ready to tackle a blank canvas in search for the truth.
