Piece description from the artist
One of the oldest towns in North Carolina and a now famous harbor for yachts, sailboats and visitors from all over, especially those travelling the Intracoastal Waterway, part of Beaufort's history is captured in this piece. A depiction of the "Shad Factory" where the Menhaden Shad fishermen processed their catch is illuminated with fabulous light and color which only Brad Styron can achieve. The colors enhance any environment and you can "smell the salt air" just by looking at it.
Brad's passion for art started as a child and continues to grow. From painting surfboards, to commercial signage design, to now owning his own gallery with an established and growing following, his beautiful photography and artwork is in demand. Brad's artwork captures vivid sunsets, landscapes, oceanscapes, wave images and light which draws you in.
Brad Styron's work has been published in numerous magazines and websites world-wide, and it adorns many many walls throughout the country. He continually searches and tries to capture the perfect wave and sunset!
