Artist and writer Brad Phillips is known for dark work that engages with themes of eroticism, depression, and mortality. His paintings display stylistic breadth, from text-based to photorealist, referring in many cases directly to his daily life. Although his work plays into the stereotypes of a struggling male artist, Phillips is interested in manipulating the autobiographical in order to generate a kind of dissonance between fiction and reality in his pieces.
