Meet Brittney S. Price

Today we’d like to introduce you to Brittney S. Price.

Thanks for sharing your story with us Brittney. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
From the time I was a little girl, painting has been there for me like an old friend, always there when I needed company or release. I never saw art as a means for living, all the artists I studied growing up were all dead, it didn’t seem like a viable career option. Growing up, I treated my art as a hobby, painting in my spare time or for gifts when I couldn’t afford to purchase “real” gifts. The fact that I am now doing art full time seems like a natural progression. December 2017, after painting a Bluto inspired mural for my little brother as a Christmas gift, I officially decided to pursue my artistry. From there, I started posting my paintings on Instagram and shortly after I began getting requests to paint projects, and well, the rest is history. A little over a year and a half later, I have murals all over Los Angeles, including a 9ft by 3ft Sugar Shack Ernie Barnes inspired mural inside ComfortLA and a custom painted piece wall piece within the heart of the Arts district for Juicebot. I’ve been learning as I go, I never say no to a project it’s more of a “let me do some research and get back to you.” I strongly believe this mode of audacity and hunger for mastery has contributed to my “overnight” growth/success. It still amazes me of how much I am capable of today, just because I dared to live my dream. There’s a Nina Simone quote that reference’s her definition of freedom being fearless. I am in a state of achieving freedom, this is my daily mantra: “ fear is no longer an option, there is no fault in failure, there is no task too tall or wide that I cannot conquer.”

We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc. – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
I’m trying to figure out the business behind being an artist. I’m not just a painter, there are so many hats to being a working artist nowadays; I am a consultant, marketer, event coordinator, web designer, negotiator, business owner, student, and consumer.

If I’m being 100% transparent, the biggest obstacle in my art journey has been overcoming my inner saboteur. Every day, I fight an inner battle with this voice that tells me that I am doing the impossible, that I’m unworthy of the opportunities and favor given to me. I am a self-taught artist and sometimes I feel my work is inferior to those classically trained. We live in an age immersed in visual stimulation and as a product of a society of comparisons self- deprecation seems almost unavoidable. I question my audacity to live my dream, while there are so many gifted artists out there. My solution is to stay out of my head and keep creating, it’s literally the only thing that keeps me sane.

We’d love to hear more about your work.
I am a visual artist, I specialize but I am not limited to the manipulation of materials to create vibrant and lively images. I work digitally, on canvas, and I have a nasty little habit of painting on walls. I am a fine artist, muralist, graphic designer. My gifting is the ability to make the visions of others come to life. I pride myself on my consultation process. I am not married to a specific style of art, I like to take a by any means necessary approach to work, interestingly enough, I believe my pieces all have a linked soul.

I’m most proud of my figure pieces, I want my viewers to have a takeaway of emotional relation to my pieces. I strive for each piece to have a soul base, a reflection of the human experience. This is most apparent within my latest project, “XXO Series: an exploration between womanhood and hope.”

I guess what sets me apart from other artists is my heart. I transparently show my process, and as a result, it has become a unique dimension to my art. Almost every piece shared has a conceptual sketch and time-lapse attached. I am very honest about where I am in my art journey. I don’t claim to have all the answers or a divine calling but through trial, error and elbow grease I make art. I believe many people can relate and are inspired to apply the same honesty and fearlessness to their day today.

What were you like growing up?
Growing up, I was shy and timid, I wouldn’t speak unless spoken to, your classic introvert. I was an only child until the age of eight, so I had a way of keeping myself occupied with arts and crafts.
