Meet Artist Brenden Sanborn

Miami, Florida watercolorist and oil painter, Brenden Sanborn has been capturing the sensuality and beauty of nude male art for two decades. Painting the male figure for Brenden is more than just placing the lines or shapes; it's a spiritual journey into expressing a much deeper realm of male sensitivity, passion, tenderness, and vulnerability. Male Nude Painting to Brenden embodies strength, masculinity, humility, and sensuality.

Brenden takes the viewer on an artful journey by capturing the subtle differences in each subject's emotions through their body language: A slight tip of the head, a strong angle of the shoulders, or a strong confident chest. Brenden tells a soul story on the paper or canvas by flirting with expressive color, through the pressure of the pen, or with the depth and width of lines. These subtleties are an accumulation of the emotion that the artist is feeling, as well as a complete reflection of the emotions that he is picking up from his subject, for these insights, come as naturally as his thoughts.

Male Nude Painting by Brenden Sanborn

Capturing the sensuality and beauty of nude male painting has been a focus of my work for over a decade and a half. I became intrigued by the human figure in college and began my exploration of the nude male art in my twenties. Painting the male figure is more than just placing the lines or shapes; it’s a spiritual journey into expressing a much deeper realm of male sensitivity, passion, tenderness, and vulnerability. Nude male painting to me encompasses strength, masculinity, humility, and sensuality.

I focus on bringing to light the deeper side of my subjects.

He's more than just a handsome face or beautiful body. I want to take the viewer on a journey through my paintings by capturing the subtle differences in each subject's emotions through body language: A slight tip of the head, a strong angle of the shoulders, or a strong confident chest. I attempt to capture the man behind the body you see to attempt to reach into the soul and express that outwardly. To do this, I flirt with expressive color and intentionally varied line weights. I tell a story within the story of the man on the paper or canvas through the pressure of the pen or with the depth and width of the lines.

These subtleties are an accumulation of the emotion that I am feeling.

The line weights are also a complete reflection of the emotions that I am picking up from my subject, for they come as naturally as my thoughts. Color comes instinctively with each painting, too, therefore I vary my palette. I see the color of my subjects like I see a beautiful sunset; each painting is different and the emotion conveyed through color is completely intuitive. The painting is always an evolution of a spiritual journey to get to know the man behind the outside appearance.
