Bri_Wenke_Art_Charleston.jpg

Bri Wenke is a painter and installation artist who creates textural figurative work with a blend of visceral expressionism and reality.  A history major, her work is inspired by deconstruction, contrast, and a fascination with the antiquity and complexity of the human story.  Born on the Connecticut coastline, Bri currently lives and works out of Charleston, SC.

 

Bri's work has been exhibited locally and internationally, with Saatchi Art and the Other Art Fair in London.  She independently curated and exhibited fully immersive exhibitions RESURGENCE and CONSUMPTION, and has collaborated with international projects such as "A.I. vs Art" by GumGum Inc.  Wenke's work can be found in private collections around the globe, and is exhibited in Charleston, SC at the Grand Bohemian Gallery. Additional features and collaborations include Charleston Living Magazine, Art Market International Magazine, Create Magazine,  Garden and Gun Magazine, The Entrepreneur’s Organization, and Yelp.
