Brayden is a Los Angeles-based street artist with work that is in essence smaller stories within a larger context of a greater story line. As a university student, Brayden was highly inspired by magazines, forming an almost obsession-like relationship with them. An obsession that eventually led him to becoming an editorial photographer working with large-scale magazines across the country. Over time the obsession did not disappear and he found himself creating photographs and works out of his recycled magazine collection, creating collages and mixing a various array of visual elements throughout the collages. As a photographer, Brayden started to build a fascination with the idea of the disposability of printed media and with it, a deeply upsetting internal emotion of how the digital revolution has cheapened the cost of photography work. These internal emotions led Brayden to build with his hands and have a more physical connection to his work, breathing new life into these so-called discarded magazines. Pieces of bright colors, turned into new story lines; a greater image with precise details giving way to a deeper message of longing and subtle sadness masked by the beauty inherent within the work.
