Sweeney Brown

Sweeney Brown is a prolific visual artist and writer based in the US. They are a nomadic artist who lives and works in a 24 foot school bus. Working from the road gives Sweeney the opportunity to create site specific work giving more meaning to their text and visual art. Brown’s artistic voice is honest and raw, delving into topics of love, crushes, trauma, fear, sobriety and peace of mind. Thoughtful, intelligent, sometimes heartbreaking and delicate. There are many stories laid bare or hidden in each piece. Having received no formal art training Sweeney has the freedom to make art without rules. Sweeney combines their ceramic work with photography, illustrations, poetry and personal essays, their ability to shift between mediums is groundbreaking. Their work invites you to sit with pain, trauma and love, encouraging the viewer to consider their own stories and how they relate to the work. There is no separation between Sweeney Brown and their art, they both exist in the same space. They are one in the same.
