Brian Lorimer was born and raised in Belleville, Ontario. He studied at the Ontario College of Art and later owned and operated Lorimer Studios, painting massive murals throughout Canada and the United States. A believer in the notion that function supersedes form, Brian is a keen cyclist and traveller who has journeyed to every continent but one.
HUDSY WORLD was ignited by these words from Pablo Picasso:
“It took me four years to paint like Raphael, but a lifetime to paint like a child.”
So what’s it like to paint like a child? To find this out Lorimer turned to a very gifted young boy named Hudson Evans. Hudson is Lorimer’s (then) five-year-old grandson who lives within the spectrum of Autism.
Hudson created a fictional universe called Hudsy World where colourful characters like Cleaning Robot, Chatterer, Mooee, Bat Beast and Tamey the Tamable Wolf reside. Using Hudson's drawings of these characters as his subject, Lorimer set out to put Picasso’s words to the test. The result is a series of work that presented Lorimer with an unexpected gift, a porthole into the landscape of neurodiversity and the opportunity to forge a unique bond between grandfather and grandson.
“COORDINATES” is based on iconic Canadian Imagery creating iconic landscapes.
Lorimer’s love for the outdoors, the land he walks daily, and the life he lives, have inspired him to capture all things Canadian. In his abstract style, inclusion of realism, graphic design and vibrant colour the series comes to life. The graphic bars that contain the numerical coordinates create a poster like affect, with concentration on focused geographical locations.
The imagery is centralized around truly recognizable Canadian imagery portraying the landscape and the activities we all love: hockey, skating, camping, canoeing, fishing and the sights we see while enjoying outdoor life.
