Brian Whitely is a visual artist and curator based in New York City.

In addition to his current project, Whitely is best known for his presidential sculpture. Installed in New York’s Central Park during Donald Trump’s election campaign in 2016, the work imagines what Trump’s tombstone would look like and be finished.

After the Trump chapter closes, Whitely engages with another public figure: Justin Bieber. However, instead of doing art about him, Whitely has been painting the character Justin Bieber for the past few months.
