Brian LaSaga was born in St.Teresa's, Newfoundland on November 1, 1955, and moved to St.George's Newfoundland in 1965. Brian's journey as an artist began when he was just nine years old. He used to draw cartoon characters along with superheroes and colored them with watercolors and colored pencils. Later on he would do watercolors of birds in his teenage years. He has a special place for birds in his life and feeds them throughout the winter months. Although he does not consider himself a bird painter, he may incorporate a bird into his work from time to time. Brian has always been a very visual person and with no formal training, art is more instinctual, full of discovery and experimentation which has continued with him today. Being somewhat of a perfectionist, he has always remained faithful to his subjects, and his imagery. Although he has experimented with watercolors, gouache, egg tempera, and oils, the artist soon realized that acrylics suited his style and technique. Today he paints primarily with acrylics on masonite panels, and prefers acrylics because they dry faster, and this allows him to layer rather quickly. His work is greatly influenced by nature, and feels that he is just a student and instrument of nature. Brian's subjects often include rural settings, weathered textures, landscapes, seascapes, and sometimes he may incorporate figures or some form of wildlife into his work as an extension of nature. The artist prefers to paint familiar experiences and subjects indigenous to his area. An area that he feels is raw and sacred. The artist's main interest is in capturing the essence of his chosen subject.

Brian's studio is located in his hometown of St.George's, Newfoundland. The island of Newfoundland is Canada's most easterly destination and offers the artist a sanctuary for his work. It has many rugged coastlines,rivers, forests, wildlife, ponds and marshes. It has also been the inspiration for Brian's work for over 36 years. When not in his studio, he can be found hiking, kayaking or making field trips to gather material for his paintings. Many of his works hang in corporate, public and private collections in Canada, United States and Europe.


"Nature is my muse and inspiration simply because of her endless subject matter and surprises. This collaboration offers me something I never even thought of. Although I prefer to paint nature themes, weathered objects and rural settings, I'm open to other things that may catch my eye. As an artist, I feel that I'm just a work in progress, and there is always something to learn. Exploring and collecting material for paintings is a great adventure for me, and always a thrill to wonder what's around the bend or beyond that ridge. I like to create a sense of place that is somewhere but nowhere in particular. I hope each and every viewer sees and takes something a little different from my work and has an experience rather than just viewing a picture. My goal is not to paint life, but to paint life into my work and create an emotional connection that I hope will inspire my viewers."


Here in St. George's and many communities throughout Newfoundland's coastlines, almost all fish shacks, barns and fences are now gone for good. In my paintings I try to capture these remnants. Many of my paintings over the years have depicted many old houses, barns, fish shacks and fences. They have all since disappeared.

Artist statement:

I have been interested in art since I was a child. My great passion was drawing and painting. One of my dreams was to open my own art gallery and painting school. Dream came true. But with dreams it is better to be careful. It soon turned out that managing the art gallery, building offers, contacts with artists, organizing exhibitions and conducting lessons took up all my free time. I had to make difficult decisions to have time to paint. A few months ago I hired competent staff in a gallery and moved to the countryside away from the noisy city. I finally found time to create and show my paintings to the world. I am very glad that I succeeded.

Art, visual representation, and the embodiment of dreams, reality, thoughts and feelings were always a big part of my life. From an early age growing up in Romania, I was drawn to all forms of creative expression. This passion was always burning inside of me, and after multiple degrees and a short stint in the world of finance, I decided that I would pursue my true passion and start down the long and winding road of becoming a self-taught artist.

Creativity can be achieved in many forms, and the art of creation is an integral part of life itself. I have been inspired by many subjects throughout this creative journey, perhaps most importantly by the distinction between the tangible world that we live in and the mysterious realm of dreams that offers a surreal gateway to our subconscious mind.

For me, painting is a language of its own, from the way the first brush stroke starts a conversation to the way the last one completes a bigger picture with grand statements, abstract feelings, or open-ended conversation. This is about the journey that the artist takes to communicate, as well as the journey the viewer will experience when absorbing a work of art.

Finding myself on a love carrousel of many different influences and styles, the core of my artistic adventure has been about the distinction between the tangible and the subconscious. In my figurative work, I contour a subject through a lens of realism to establish a common understanding of existence. Through the use of mixed media in the surrounding, I reveal a representation of what the subject’s subconscious thoughts are revealing to the viewer.

I like to ask the viewer to consider if the subject is aware of the fine line between dream and reality that they find themselves in. Is the subject conscious of the feelings and thoughts they have, or are we as viewers and creators the ones who are more aware?

In the world of spiritual consciousness, Blue Aura refers to a subject’s feeling of personal truth and means of communication. It is the energy field that empowers the person to speak and live their own unique truth. Irrespective of the relentless timeline of the world around us, human connection with the spiritual self was, is, and always will be the core of what makes us who we really are.
