Portrait of Famille cafe's featured artist Brian Legan

Featured Artist: Brian Legan

Brian Legan has been creating since infancy. 

He was born deaf and with only one ear and he does quite fine as it is a conductive hearing loss and not nerve deafness. He didn't receive a hearing aid until he was 5 years old...and auditory hardwiring in the brain takes hold at 12- 24 months and as Brian points out:

"this explains to me why I was hardwired in realm of the visual the most - which I am grateful for!"

When asked "what kind of painter/artist are you?" after more than 30 years, Brian responds that he is a Visualist.  Trying and gleaning skills from a cornucopia of media, he has created logos, murals, illustrations, paintings and more all with the goal to create meaningful works of art. 

Also, he loves teaching art. Currently he teaches at Falls Church Arts, Arlington County, and the Arlington Arts Center, in addition to private instruction.

Brian received two certificates Honorable Mention Awards for the Scholastic Art Awards National Competition held at the Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington, DC.

He received his Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree at Virginia Commonwealth University in painting and printmaking, with a minor in pre-columbian Art history. Brian has been an active member and artist/instructor at Falls Church Arts for years, and is the featured Falls Church Arts artist chosen by Famille cafe!
