Brian Kershisnik

Brian T. Kershisnik (born 1962) is an American painter. He studied art at the University of Utah, Brigham Young University (BYU), and the University of Texas at Austin. He lives in Provo, Utah.

One art professor described his style as primitive-realist, and his paintings have a dream-like feel that is focused upon idealized human figures. His notable works combine a portrait of Leslie Norris, Nativity, and She Will Find What Was Lost. Kershisnik often begins past sketch or title, transforming his ideas into paintings. His piece of legislation is in the remaining collections of many institutions, including the Brigham Young University Museum of Art, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and the Covey Center for the Arts.
