Blair Brennan combines his writing and art practice from his home in Edmonton. His sculpture, installation and drawing have been exhibited nationally in numerous group and solo exhibitions. Blair has contributed articles to a number of printed and digital arts and cultural publications. A 1988 Globe and Mail art review noted the “rude punk brutality” of his art work. With regard to visual art in his home city of Edmonton, Blair has been called an “enfant terrible” and a “dissenter” (to an established school of Edmonton-based abstract sculpture). Edmonton Journal arts reporter Pamela Anthony gets closer to the poetic nature of Blair’s work, comparing him to Joseph Campbell and, more recently, Regina-based artist and critical art writer David Garneau has called him an “Edmonton-based neo-beat poet disguised as a blue-collar industrial artist who brands walls, books, leather and paper with the world’s subtexts.” Blair manages the Fine Arts Building (FAB) Gallery, where he provides students in Art & Design with a professional venue within which to exhibit their work.
