Brandon Bird's Astonishing World of Art is now available from Chronicle Books! Order at Amazon or Barnes and Noble, or pick it up from your favorite bookstore.

I'm originally from Sacramento. I began this site in 2002, shortly after I graduated from the University of California, Santa Cruz.

From 2004 to 2006 I was an Artist-in-Residence at Cornell, and now I live in Los Angeles for some reason.

Upcoming art shows & events are listed here.
