Brad Albright is a poster artist and illustrator best known for his modern take on retro 3D art for red/blue glasses, and for creating OldSchool3D.com as a free gallery for three-dimensional anaglyphic art. Drawing in a line-art style reminiscent of underground comics and classical woodcut engravings, his work is equally inspired by comics, album covers, band tees, literature, film and television. His work reflects the thematic influence of pop culture entertainment, with techniques marrying traditional fine art training with modern digital tools.
Whether translating the influence of pop-culture, exploring the alluring danger of the Wild West (Texan Gothic), or celebrating the multi-sensory live music crowd experience (Concerto Collection), his work is regularly presented in old-school 3D, surprising and engaging viewers with red/blue glasses for a fun, nostalgic interactive experience.
Brad earned his Bachelor of Fine Arts from Cornell University’s College of Architecture, Art & Planning, where he studied Combined Media to join the disciplines of traditional studio art with those of cartooning and animation.
While working as a full-time professional graphic designer, he earned his Master of Fine Arts at Hartford Art School's MFA program in Illustration, assembling award-winning professional artists and teachers from the nation's leading markets. During this time, Brad taught himself his own specialized 3D technique that helps define the work today.
In 2018 Brad retired from his long-time position designing officially licensed pop-culture merchandise, making the leap to concentrate 100% on drawing and sharing his work with audiences in Dallas/Ft. Worth and beyond.
His work can be found regularly at Dallas’ Kettle Art Gallery, Los Angeles’ Gallery 1988, Asheville's Zapow Gallery, and he can be found in person around Dallas/Fort Worth's regular shows, festivals, and outdoor markets.
