Cire B paints from a different angle. The artist and US Army Drill Sergeant take an unorthodox approach to his artwork, which has sold out for tens of thousands of dollars at some of the largest art shows and exhibits in the world. As someone with experience in many different realms of life, Cire B is able to paint backed by a fresh perspective and a great deal of experience.
“Being immersed in intense environments for much of my career has led me to create artwork as an outlet of expression. Whatever I’m feeling, I let it out onto the canvas with no filter in hopes that someone else can relate to that feeling,” notes Cire B. The pieces, filled with vivid colors and hidden messages, are direct reflections of Cire B’s thoughts, emotions, and whatever energy he feels at that moment in time. “I like for the paintings to act as a portal to my soul for viewers, building up the minds and spirits of as many people as I possibly can through art,” states the artist.
To do so, he enjoys collaborating with his environment and audience, creating them interactive experiences from financial art lead workshops, to personal development inspired paint and sip classes, to live painting different performers. “Through art works, exhibitions, and performances,” he notes, “I encourage guests to open their minds, experience epiphanies and a sense of euphoria, and invoke emotions that were once buried.” To achieve this effect, Cire B uses a combination of acrylics, pastels, and fire to make his already bold artwork stand out more.
The artist’s unique style has caught the attention of some of the largest art collectors in the world, allowed him to participate in various auctions for private and public collectors, sell out his art shows, and speak as a guest on prominent art figure Gary Vee’s podcast. Cire B ran a solo two month art exhibition at port authority in New York City, which garnered the attention of thousands and granted him the opportunity to display his artwork at Art Hearts Fashion during New York Fashion Week. He ended the year at art basel for another solo exhibition where his sought-after works of art sold for thousands.
Now, Cire B runs his own studio called Cire B Studios. “It serves as a platform for visual artists to connect with art lovers across the world,” he states. One of the company’s products, the Art Box, has become a bestseller in the art world and provided interactive art experiences for purchasers worldwide. “The Art Box is a premium paint and sip kit that provides a guided experience of fun, with themes, games, and paint tutorials led by various artists,” says Cire B. “The kits are shipped directly to doorsteps and contain everything needed to create a masterpiece, including a step-by-step tutorial video and custom playlist.”
“I find immense joy in allowing others to experience art, whether it be showcasing my own art for the public or helping out aspiring artists,” notes Cire B. The artist is excited as he plans his next venture, opening his own art gallery, which will launch in 2024. “I’ve managed to stay independent as an artist. I want to help others do this too while growing my brand through more Cire B art galleries around the world.”
