Brad Pickard is a Canadian Artist, Painter and Digital CG designer based in Toronto. He produces visual artistry for both personal and professional projects, and has for over a decade since earning a Technical Illustration and CGI degree from Canada’s Seneca College. His work has been recognized for its astonishing photographic realness in award-winning commercial campaigns for clients like Mercedes, Heineken, Pepsi, and Milk, and he continues to find time to dedicate to his art. His paintings and illustrations have been featured in galleries in both Toronto and New York. His creative collaborations with Canada’s top commercial photographers, which seamlessly blend photographic elements and CGI to magical visual effect, keep turning heads in the international advertising community. Brad loves the idea of using a single image to tell a sweeping story. He believes no concept is too complicated or too big, and that there’s really no such thing as an impossible visual challenge. He is also fascinated by birds and enjoys long kayak trips with his wife, Sandy.
