Brandt Peters- Phantsmenagerie
 
Pop Surrealist painter and contemporary toy maker, Brandt Peters, presents a collection of new multi-media works born of a year of isolation, reflection, and wonder. Dozens of odd characters inspired by the parallel storylines of depression era animated characters combined with the growing  anxiety of an uncertain future in an uncertain world. He combines vintage found objects with timeless avatars into hand made “toys” and assemblages that tell stories of resilience and optimism. 
Brandt Peters emerged from the entertainment industry into an internationally recognized and accomplished fine artist, designer, and producer. Often known for his award winning toy designs, Peters is also a mixed media painter and story-teller who centers his work on character design and visual development. His work hearkens back to the earliest days of comics and animation, with a seeming simplicity that hides layers of intricate back story rooted in humor and a strong, empowering narrative voice. He is one of original founders of Circus Posterus and Stranger Factory gallery and pre-pandemic, worked as an Art Director for Meow Wolf.
