About the Artist

Marianne Bland’s art career began in 1998 when she started her own mural painting business at the age of 16. She has since acquired a BFA in Painting & Drawing from the California College of the Arts and has studied abroad in Marseille, France.

Marianne's favorite subject matter is the city. She is intrigued by the urban landscape as a dense concentration of diverse, individual experiences occurring simultaneously in a public space. She often explores the city’s harmony of contradictions in colorful nightscape paintings and her biggest influences are Edward Hopper and Wayne Thiebaud.
