blues, desert & soul is not just about art. it’s about people.
Blues, Desert & Soul is currently an Arizona-based, online store that is dreaming of landing an Old Town Scottsdale store front. For us, it’s not just about sales, it’s about establishing a connection to people through lifestyle, music and nostalgia -- all while chatting over the counter and listening to the BLUES stream through the speakers. Sure, you have your own music on now, but we have dreams....
My name is Brian Banash – artist, surfer, & music enthusiast. I am a born and raised California native. The inspiration behind my work reveals my appetite for adventure and fondness for nostalgia. You will recognize the influence of the coastal lifestyle of California and Hawaii in my art. After graduating with a degree in graphic design and illustration, I have spent 20 plus years traveling, meeting people and producing art. After a lifetime of creating art to be sold out of the back of my truck, I found a team of people who recognized the value in what I was creating. I am humbled to have been given the opportunity to share the accumulation of my work with a larger audience. I am eager to continue creating works that others can appreciate and relate to.
