Brian Oh was born in Urbana-Champagne, Illinois, and spent formative years living in South Korea and Germany. He moved to Chicago to pursue film studies at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Calling NYC home since 2009, he's worked extensively as a Director/ Cinematographer/ Editor and Producer. Returning to his fine arts roots, he began working on drawings and paintings to seek the improvisational creative freedom he often lacked in his filmmaking process. In his paintings he creates environments deeply influenced by the urban cityscape he lives in, always seeking to find the organic nature of lines and forms as they unfold spontaneously.
