Brand Us Art
Brand Us Art is the total collaboration of artistic partners and married couple, Phillip Martin and Theresa O’Neill. As a DJ samples and remixes musical pieces to create something new, our collaborative paintings transform and remix our lives through the making of art. Drawing from hip hop, music culture, art history, literature, vintage advertising and modern graphic aesthetics, we strive to convey a sense of drama and the poetry of existence. Our primary goal is to celebrate the history of greatness by creating of works of art that are accessible to multiple perspectives and interpretations. Our work can be seen at www.brandusart.com.
