Meet Brian Hearns

Opening Reception 6pm • May 11, 2023 • Ewing Municipal building

Self described creator of Abstract Art, Stone Sculptures and Jewelry Maker, this is Brian Hearns. An elementary art teacher and abstract artist. His mission is to change the world by showing the possibilities of love, truth, resolve and hope through his Birds of Virtue. You may know him as Livnsol. His pieces convey thoughts of building the strength of women and women empowerment. His pieces build bridges for positive conversation.

Brian reports, “My existence lies in the root of seeking and exploring the positive options life has to offer. I started with a dream to please everyone that I came into contact with. I quickly realized that the thought of pleasing every person was unreasonable. I then took my artistic vision and created various art mediums with different colors that implored people to take notice. Some call it a jack of all trades. I call it an artistic outlet.” 

Brian spent his younger years in front of the Sunday paper trying to copy different cartoon characters. During his teenage years he explored creating abstract art work. After high school he enrolled at West Chester University to study art, receiving a BFA (Studio Arts Painting and Drawing Concentration). One week later he enrolled at Moore College of Art and Design in Philadelphia to earn his K-12 teaching certification. 

Much of his early adult years were spent honing my artistic freedoms and working for a granite and marble company that taught him to be humble and respect people and humanity. Brian has said that, “The beauty of nature has encompassed my soul and has asked it to give back. I create to influence change. Believing in myself has allowed me to communicate with the world. It is about giving back and allowing the people to have a piece of my soul. I can give my soul over and over again with no repercussions other than the expression of art.” He began his teaching career at 35, it was his dream job.“I love showing, guiding and influencing the younger generation to grow, inside and out. Through teaching is where Livnsol was born. I wanted to create a brand that related to every positive aspect of a person’s life. Love, Kindness and Respect are the roots of what and why I do what I do. We can all learn and grow from one another. Our responsibility is to be kind. The community I grew up in and love so much (Ewing) is the community I am growing in Downingtown. Being an educator for 16 years has given me the opportunity to change lives. The abstract art work that I create is a manifestation of the opportunities that were shown to me through communication, hard work and dedication to my craft. It is a direct link to who I am as a human being.”

About Ewing’s Featured Artist Program
