Brandon Kristy (b. Fullerton, CA)
Visual artist, haunted attraction designer/builder and social activist. Influenced by artists/musicians, science, nature, the world around me, and by the need to understand myself. Grew up in Orange County, bucked formal education and art school, found myself and a sense of reality walking and exploring local hiking trails and expressed it through sketchbooks and haunted houses, gravitated toward the alternative expressions and positive message of "aggressive" music culture, found The Zeitgeist Movement in 2009, a global activist group, and currently coordinates it's Los Angeles Chapter.
Everything is a form of art. Art is the ‘new’ thing; it drives us forward, influencing and energizing culture; a gift to the world that the artist will one day leave behind. It's for fun too. I use art to relate to whats going on inside of people for the sake of unity and understanding, to inspire change, and to stir a creative force within all of us to grow, overcome, and live well.
Within the emergence of the individual, and the species, there lies a deep strong human beauty, that can overcome anything.
