Brian Poli-Dixon is an artist based in Miami, Florida. After a successful career as a wide receiver for the UCLA Bruins, he spent several years playing in the NFL before having to leave the sport prematurely due to a leg injury. This allowed him to rediscover his love for art, which he has since explored and developed with his distinctive paintings by using raw color, texture and form to create emotionally laden work in a variety of styles. His work strives to be relatable, accessible and enjoyable while also provoking thought and eliciting complex reactions. His practice also extends into photography and sculptural canvas.
