O-ryan Hoeger, Brisbane Member Since October 2008 Artist Statement O-ryan Hoeger! was born in 1984 in Fullerton, California. Quickly moving north to the Sacramento suburbs, he was raised in relative luxury and went to college. Studying at the University of California, Irvine for four quarters, the spoiled brat decided their art program was too conceptual for his refined (and comic-book based) tastes, so he moved to San Francisco (I know, right?). There, he studied illustration at the Academy of Art University for a year and a half, which turned out to be a great call, since now he can draw and paint like a madman with half a illustration degree. Leaving the Academy, O-ryan ended up back in Sacramento, spending three more months apprenticing with William Cochran in Maryland, travelling in New Mexico and California, and attending the Burning Man event. Lately, he's started juggling and spinning poi. Mostly, though, O-ryan is here for your edification and amusement, and hopes that you enjoy the show.
Ha ha! An update! O-ryan has since moved to Australia, and is now beginning to send some brand-new images back from that foreign and wond'rous land. Enjoy!
