23. I’m An Artist, Bro (ft. Nathan Brown)

How did a skater kid grow his own experiential marketing business, start a festival with Yelawolf, and leave the entertainment industry to make a living as a muralist? Primarily painting large scale public art, Nathan Brown has produced over 40 commissioned murals for brands like Red Bull, Patagonia, Spotify and more. Listen closely as he weaves us a tale about pagers, counterculture, Budapest, and burnout.

Artist Bio:

Originally from Los Angeles, Nathan relocated to Nashville when he was 11 years old and endured a major culture shock. Embracing the transition between cities through skateboarding and exploring new territories through traveling for skating as a sponsored am, also motivated Nathan artistically. He drew inspiration from skateboarding travels, gradient color palettes in nature, city life and structural lines in architecture, which he eventually transitioned into the studio and on buildings across the U.S. and Europe.

Having now produced over 60 large scale commissioned murals for brands such as Red Bull, Wrangler, Patagonia, Top Golf, WeWork, Google, Spotify and more, Nathan is focused on working with brands to bring beautification projects and art programs to communities that need it the most. 

He primarily paints large scale public art on the the streets, as well as indoor private commissions and is currently based in Nashville, TN.
