Brian Lorimer is one of Canada’s leading visual artists and muralists.
In 1995, he opened Lorimer Studios Inc., which quickly became one of the nation’s most successful mural studios. Lorimer eventually sold his company in order to pursue his interest in fine art painting.
Inspired by his travels, Lorimer has created several painting series that document the lives of people around the world. After a trip to Asia, he produced City2Sunrise, an eye-opening chronicle of the emotionally troubling reality of Cambodia’s orphaned children. In 2011, Lorimer’s series Omo invited viewers to explore Ethiopia’s remote Omo Valley and to consider its indigenous tribal people, seemingly forgotten by time.
Lorimer continues to paint from his lakeside studio in Eastern Ontario.
Brian Lorimer’s exciting new series 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 five year old grandson who lives within the
spectrum of Autism.
Hudson created a fictional universe called Hudsy World where colourful characters like Octopussy, Firetruck, Mooee, Bat Beast and Tammie 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.
