Artist Statement Bryan Kemila
In 1999 I went to the Da Vinci exhibit in Victoria British Columbia. I looked at his art. Poor sap. I could do so much better Well, hog-tie me and throw me a bone, I found out I couldnt. The 3 hours I spent at the exhibit gave me confidence, and the time after gave me realization. I wasnt any good. Cracker Jack
But I wanted to do art. I wanted to paint. I would do it come hell or high water. Well, maybe not hell. I drew pictures of naked girls from the magazines. Eventually I improved. Then I realized I was better than Da Vinci, if not in reality, in the deep recesses of my sick little mind.
So come with me. Explore my art, and let me know what you think. But dont offend me as Im just a introvert kind of a guy.
But actually, I do like detail in my paintings. To paint the breasts and legs of a beautiful woman is an experience. They must be accurately drawn and painted. The eyes, the mouth, the very essense of a woman must be attained. The most beautiful creature on the face of the earth must live on my canvas. Must be alive with all that is the woman.
The dark background of my later paintings speak of the atrocities in the world. Through the lense of my paintings, I hope to show the uninformed that the elitism, and vulgarity that goes with it, needs to be defeated.
My paintings include the following
Acrylic on artboard
Oil on canvas
Sculptor - Pink Soapstone
Resin base sculptor
Ive been painting for 22 years and have enjoyed it immensely. I cant think of a day that I would wish to not pick up a brush.

Nothing on the planet is quite so compelling as the woman.
Re-creating the essence of feminine beauty brings me immense
pleasure and satisfaction. Hundreds of happy practice hours
have explored various artistic techniques and effects.
I was born in the small prairie town of Dinsmore, Saskatchewan,
in the middle of Canada. Winters of minus 40 F made morning
farm chores potentially lethal for a little guy of five, hauling heavy
water buckets for the cows. The sloshing water on my pant-legs
quickly froze, as did I.
Im proud to say I have merely a grade 10 education. Most knowledge
useful to me over the years has accrued because I am self-taught.
Being a curious and determined chap, and motivated by bills to pay,
Ive learned a number of skills. The list includes small engine repair,
electrical wiring, construction, furniture building, commercial painting,
sign painting, commercial graphics, logo design, bookkeeping
and small business practices. Way back in the day I even learned
to read Greek, in a misguided pursuit of biblical study.
A turning point came at the age of 34, when a neighbor observed
my humble effort at lettering a boat sign. He casually asked,
Why dont you do that professionally.
Well, that bit of encouragement led to practicing for 2 years
in my little home on Vancouver Island, BC. I had no money,
but was able to request a sign painting book from the library.
At the end of the book was an extensive bibliography
of other sign painting books. So I requested them one by one,
until I had studied 84 books.
As it turns out, the brush control and lettering skills improved.
After 2 years of consistent practice, I realized my efforts surpassed
the samples in the books. Kudos and much gratitude must be given
to the gem of instruction on layout and design The Mike Stevens Journal.
I launched my own sign business, which I consider a successful enterprise.
In my early years, sign painting involved simply a small tin of poster paint
and a grey-squirrel tail brush. Back in the day, grocery stores used
hand-painted, large paper banners to advertise their weekly specials.
So I was good to go into business with minimal overhead
When I retired just this past year, the sign business
had since evolved devolved to computer software,
vinyl-cutter equipment and stick-on letters.
Layout and design still remain crucial in the biz,
but hand-lettering skill has little commercial value today.
Happily the merits of a discerning eye and keen brush control
now produce erotic art, such as you may view on this site....
