Pierce Brosnan started painting at the age of 16, and he is also a graphic designer by profession.

“I always wanted to be an artist, a painter. I started as a trainee artist in a small studio in South London.” / Pierce Brosnan.

After Brosnan left school, he pursued a career in art and began working as an illustrator. The actor, who was trained as a commercial artist, has painted numerous landscapes and abstracts as well as colorful portraits.

A colleague suggested that Pierce attend a theatre workshop, and eventually he abandoned his artwork to pursue an acting career. Brosnan took up painting again in the late 1980’s during his first wife’s illness. “Sometimes dramatic moments affect the way you see yourself in the world.” He found painting therapeutic. “I started painting again and out came every color.”

Citing his influences as Picasso, Matisse, Bonnard and Kandinsky, Brosnan spends much of his free time between film shoots in front of his easel. “I am an enthusiastic painter as a friend of mine likes to say.”

Nowadays, Brosnan sets up a studio wherever the filmmaking takes him. The stylistic direction of Brosnan’s paintings has been characterized as pop art.
