The Brave Drawn World of Bryan Cantley

He served as visiting faculty at SCI-Arc and Woodbury and conducted a graduate architectural drawing seminar at The Bartlett School of Architecture in London, where he also installed a solo exhibition in 2008. His models and drawings are part of the permanent collection of the SFMOMA and he was a recipient of a Graham Foundation Grant in 2002.

Mechrucifix the “Mechrucifix” plays with the allegory of the [tattoo] owner’s religious background, using the imagery of the shrouded cross as a generator for mechanical tubing… both giving life and taking spiritual waste from the body…

Cantley has shown work in a number of institutions, including SFMOMA and UCLA, and was featured in Architectural Design’s special issues, “Drawing Strength From Machinery” in 2008 and “Drawing Architecture” in 2013.
