Brian Sweet

Using high-contrast saturated colors and expansive, often idyllic imagery, Brian Sweet’s artwork evokes a timeless yet nostalgic style. Lush landscapes, quaint village scenes, and stately castles are showcased in his artwork. After studying at the Somerset College of Art in the early 1960s, Sweet (British, b. 1945) first worked on London’s Fleet Street as a general illustrator, primarily in advertising, before returning to Somerset in 1971. He found success illustrating books (specializing in marine subjects) and designing logo and promotional materials for the British Broadcasting Company’s television series One World. The 1980s marked both a stylistic change to his artwork and a return to the (now renamed) Somerset College of Arts and Technology, where he would lecture in the Department of Graphic Design for nearly 30 years.
