Brian Hunter was born in Winnipeg, Canada in 1985 but spent a large part of his childhood in Alberta and Ontario. Coming from a military background and frequently moving from town to town, art became an important interest for him very early on. In 2006, Hunter produced his first short video titled Alice, and the following year graduated from Concordia's Studio Arts program in Montreal. He has always been interested in challenging everything predisposed, given, and expected. Hunter's work often focuses on perceptions and ideas of masculinity in society. Visually, his work is made up of overlapping, manipulating and layering images borrowed from different points in time. He continues to live and work on various projects in Montreal. and is represented by La Galerie sur Greene in Westmount, Quebec.
