Brandon Moon
Jersey City, New Jersey

Brandon Moon’s abstract expressionist paintings are complex, tense, optimistic, impulsive, and psychedelic. Each piece depicts another world, or many worlds within itself. His work speaks to the complexity of society, and the overwhelming stimuli of the day to day in modern life. Living in a big city like New York can be both exciting and scary. Some days the city shines like a utopia, and other days you feel a degrading dystopian weight upon you. While many artists seek to simplify what they see and experience in the world, Brandon takes all of the information and unleashes it onto the canvas. Using a surrealist free-association technique, he takes us on a journey through his subconscious mind. Each mark leads to the next, and each painting is a continuation of the one before it. However, the work remains extremely precise and controlled, with bright colors and bold graphic shapes that are reminiscent of an 80’s street art style. The paintings change depending on the distance you view them at. They are entirely different works viewed 5 feet versus 10 feet away. Brandon approaches his art without hesitation, and in turn, he and his viewers are rewarded with discovery.

Comments About This Piece

This piece was made with oil, graphite, ink, and a few Swarovski crystals. My intention initially was to make a piece large enough to embrace me and drown me in color and warmth. An extremely challenging piece to bring together, not just because of size, but because of the juxtaposition of seemingly contrasting elements.  One of my favorites!  

This piece is on a gallery wrapped canvas and the painting continues around the sides. It comes ready to hang. 

Mixed media artwork

Mixed media refers to an artwork that is created using several different types of traditional art media, for example oil paint, ink and collage. The specific media used for each mixed media piece on UGallery is listed in the notes section.

Stretched canvas

Canvas is a heavy-duty fabric used as a painting surface. When a canvas artwork is labeled stretched, it means the canvas has been wrapped around a wooden frame (the ''stretcher''). Stretched canvases typically do not require framing.


A one-of-a-kind artwork is a unique piece handmade by the artist. There is only one in existence. The work may be part of a series, however, the piece itself is unlike any other. This piece is available exclusively at UGallery.
