Brian Lorimer: Art Makes A Difference

Brian is an artist who beleives that art can make a difference. And how? Well, he is partnering with an organization called City2Sunrise. Brian writes about this partnership of their plans: "Together we are planning on making a difference in the lives of children in the world and our first stop is Cambodia. In January, I will be joining my friends from Australia on an extraordinary journey through South East Asia. It promises to be a trip of a lifetime, that we hope will bring awareness to the plight of the children in the Sunrise Children’s Village Orphanage. They will be riding motocross bikes over 14,000 kms to raise funds for for the Orphanage. My contribution is going to be a show of my work that will be about the Trip and the Orphanage."

Brian was born in Belleville, and studied at the Art Gallery of Ontario and the Ontario College of Art and Design. His custom murals can be seen in the Toronto Zoo, Hard Rock Cafe, O'Charley's Restaurants, and Labatt's Breweries. He now paints from his home on Missassagagon Lake.

Brian had a recent showing at Gallery Artplus in Belleville, On, and before that at Lorimer Studios in Toronto, and at Art Auction, in Barrie, Ontario.
