Brian explores human psychology in whimsical ways that cut to the depth of our shared experiences. Serious yet funny, he offers much to explore and remind us of our own frailties and tensions.

His expertise in fabrication allows Brian to create in various ways with new and traditional materials. He has made the use of 3-D printing a pivotal method to realize his concepts.

Mr. Zimmerman was born in Houston, Texas and is an artist, fabricator, and Assistant Professor at Webster University based in St. Louis, Missouri. He holds a BFA in Painting and Art History from the Kansas City Art Institute, and a studio MFA focused in sculpture and public art from the University of California–San Diego. His work has been exhibited in galleries, museums, and through public art commissions nationally and internationally.

Having previously worked as a full-time fabricator in tandem with his studio practice, his skills and interests travel between drawing, painting, wood, metal, plastic, foam, casting, laser cutting, CNC milling, and 3D scanning and printing. In his studio practice, his materials have ranged from traditional sculptural media to old boats, baking flour, electronics, motor oil, neon light, and many items found in thrift stores or on the side of the road. His work focuses around viewer experience, exploring compliments and contradictions, maintaining a guttural and intentional connection to materials, weaving and unraveling layers of meaning, and nurturing the joy of collaborating with materials and ideas through the act of making.
