Brian Nash was born and raised in Boston, Massachusetts. After receiving an MBA from Dartmouth he worked as an Account Executive at the Leo Burnett ad agency in Chicago. Later Brian became the Director of Retail Marketing and Advertising for Polo Ralph Lauren in NYC when he got the urge to write country music. He moved to Nashville to become a songwriter, and has had a few dozen songs recorded. Although he couldn’t imagine loving anything more than songwriting, he discovered another love while in Nashville: Art.
Although he had always loved art and had spent a lot of time in museums and galleries, he had never painted. One day, though, Brian traded his guitar for a paint brush, and now he couldn’t be happier. Brian’s art is now sold in high-end galleries around the country and is in many high-profile collections and public spaces.
Brian Nash is drawn to paintings that have an inherent narrative or graphic element, which may be a result of his background in advertising.
Nash is currently writing and illustrating a children’s book.
