Brandon Behning and Marcus Hunter
Brandon Behning was born in Alpena Michigan in 1982. Marcus Hunter was born in Muskegon Michigan in 1983. They met when Brandon moved to Grand Rapids Michigan in 1999. After spending much of their time together while attending High School, they both attended Kendall College of Art & Design intermittently until moving to Santa Fe, NM, in 2007. They are both spectacular creative forces; making art together sometimes and sometimes not. Having cohabitated together for as long as they have, the two have developed a highly refined (if not always so specific) aesthetic vocabulary. Marcus’ work primarily embodies minimalist painting practices while Brandon’s consists of far more frenetic qualities. The two, mostly different, approaches create a successful balance of the cautious and chaotic.
