“I was inspired to draw President Obama not only because he is the first black president of the United States, but because he is a great symbol to many young and talented men that any dream is possible to follow,” says, artist Brad Talley. “I started drawing at the age of 10 months and instantly became fascinated with how pictures and objects looked. I soon began to challenge myself by creating drawings that resembled how my very own eyes examined this world.” Brad's artwork is hanging proudly in the corridors of his “art lab” eagerly awaiting the opportunity to personally present the President with his gift. “I create and present my art to celebrities often, but with an opportunity to hand my work of inspiration to Obama one day, would be a very historical moment for me!”
The humble, yet creatively loud artist, Brad, began his art education at Super Saturday Art School at City College and Morgan State University, both located in Baltimore, Maryland. He is one of Baltimore's popular young artist in the nightlife scene giving surprise presentations to celebrity figures such as NFL super stars, Ray Rice and Micheal Vick, Tyler Perry's House of Payne's actor Lance Gross, Actor Guy Torry, Comedian Mike Epps and a host of other local and national icons. When Brad is not working on portraits, he is painting art decor in homes, finding new art pursuits and opportunities and spending time with his wife Tyrika Talley.
