Brian Andreas, creator of StoryPeople
   Smith Galleries has featured the prints, sculpture and books of Brian Andreas for many years. His art is his ability to write every man's thoughts...not easy.
    Brian Andreas is an American writer, painter, sculptor, technologist and publisher widely known for an ongoing series of works presented by the author as StoryPeople.
    The StoryPeople collection now includes eleven books incorporating drawings and writings; color prints of his drawings and short stories along; and mixed-media sculptures incorporating salvaged wood in deliberately crude shapes, bright colors, hand drawings (especially faces) and rubber-stamped imprints of the authors writings.
