Bryant Giles is a man of many artistic talents. As one of the most prominent names in the modern art world, Giles has a distinct painting style. His work often features repeating and overlapping characters – detailed sketches of faces and bodies – along with a number of other random elements that combine to create works that require much more than a quick glance from viewers. These intricate drawings and paintings are quite complicated, but they all seem to showcase emotion and humanity in their rawest form.
Not only is he a fine artist, creating works that sell for upwards of $1,000, he is also a creative partner of NikeLab Chicago. He has worked with the shop to design sneakers and has his artwork featured on a wall of the store.
Along with painting and his collaborations with Nike, Giles also designs clothing. He is working to release his own line and has previewed some of his work on his Instagram account. Some of the clothing that he wears in the posts feature the same characters seen in his paintings.

In today’s art world, Giles is definitely in a higher league. And with that, I will leave you with the following tweet. I mean, you know you’ve made it when this happens:
