Brando: Art Director + Oil Painter

Ironically, as a creative who comes from a lineage of artists under the moniker of “Brando” I have yet to place value in the idea of a legacy.

I’m a Shakespeare nut. It’s perhaps the one thing that I’m known for now, and it no doubt will be the major thing I’m remembered for when I’m six feet under. I’ve spent the last thirteen years training intensively to develop the skill set to bring Shakespeare vividly to life. Read more>>

Moti Tavassoli: Product Designer and Visual Artist

Every time I pick up my pen to draw, it is because an idea was tickling my soul and urging me to explore it. There is this sacred, playful and pure part of my soul that lights up by the bliss of creative play, and I think it can easily go overlooked and unfed. I want my legacy to be a body of work that nurtures that part of the soul and even inspire a desire in my audience to begin a creative journey of their own. Read more>>
