During all my discussions and interviews with people in the Detroit area, “art” is one keyword that I keep hearing as this great city continues to rebuild. Among our talented artists, sculptor Austen Brantley with his extrusive creations stands out as one of the most prominent creative minds I’ve encountered. I first met him one year ago while doing a photoshoot of model Shia J as he sculpted her and then I returned last night to visit his solo exhibit opening to catch up on all he’s been up to. Links to his Facebook page and his studio / gallery address are below. I hope to conduct an actual interview for the site before next Spring.
