Chris Stapleton


Today I’m grateful for my God given talent of art. A melding of skill, knowledge and craftsmanship - a true gift that is greater than me, and for this I am thankful. I feel most alive when creating something that ignites me, inspires me and pushes me to do better work and live a more honest life. Today, Chris Stapleton is that someone. When he sings, I believe him. He sets fire to that passion in me. He digs deep, going to those unseen dark places in life that we all have (and if we’re honest) can relate to. He crosses over into Blues, Memphis Soul, Americana and Country with great spiritual depth. A colossal talent indeed.

Are you a fan of Chris? Was it his unprecedented 8-minute long stunning duet with Justin Timberlake at this years CMA awards? Or perhaps his astounding performance of ‘Cry’ on Jimmy Fallon which earned him a rare “we’re not worthy” bow from house drummer Questlove – to quote RollingStone.

This new work of Chris Stapleton took two months to create - from concept, research, collection of items to final assemblage. Each single piece was cut by hand, glued and assembled. 48 x 48 inches, ( 4ft x 4ft ) on canvas told in story through assembled, collaged, found and repurposed materials. Many thanks to my friend Elise Rand Smith for helping me find some of the many items such as:

• Various and collected pocket knives were used in making Stapleton’s hat
• 1970’s fishing lures, bobbers and reel
• Actual coal from Kentucky & Tennessee was used to form the horizon line
• A set of original, vintage black and white Kentucky coal mining photos 
• Vintage 45’s and reel-to-reel recording tape 
• Vintage jeans used to create his jacket

Original work is available for purchase subject to prior sale. Contact studio@brezinkadesign.com for inquiries. Thank you for stopping by to have a look. I hope you enjoy this new work. If so, please let me know and share it with your friends.

Hand Lettering

HAND LETTERING Part of a larger project I've been working on. Each piece cut by hand and assembled the old fashioned way. I'm a huge Chris Stapleton fan and am so glad his star is beginning rise for the masses to enjoy his incredible "unapologetic display of abnormal levels of talent" as Entertainment Weekly so poetically declared.

(A throwback project from a few years ago) Several weeks ago, I received a call from the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum. They were nearing the end of compiling their latest, 2nd floor exhibit featuring all new artifacts, videos and music spanning several decades. From 1965 – present. Their creative team thought I might be a good fit for this campaign and commissioned me to create 3 illustrations. A billboard, an illustrated version of their existing logo, and a vertical and horizontal print ad were rendered. It was a hit upon delivery and continues to be successful campaign for them. Cut paper, collage and mixed media.
