David Brandy began his creative career with a BA in Radio and Television Arts from Ryerson University.
His practice has evolved since then from radio copywriter and producer, to Founder and Creative Director of a marketing events agency, to photographic storyteller.
Brandy’s photographs capture transient moments that reveal objects or places that are altered or detached from their natural function or place. He seeks out scenes that emphasize a strong sense of absence or isolation. Within these scenes Brandy is inspired to reflect a splendour we seldom notice; revealing that beauty can be strange — and the strange can be beautiful.
Brandy was one of 33 Finalists in Quest Art’s 2018 TD Wealth | Thor Wealth Management National Art Prize.
He was invited to exhibit in Scarborough Arts’ inaugural booth at the 2018 Toronto Outdoor Art Fair.
His photos were chosen as finalists for both the “2018 RMG Exposed” and the “2018 SNAP for ACT” fine art photography silent auctions.
He was also one of 49 finalists chosen from across Canada in the 2017 Salt Spring National Art Prize and Exhibition.
And he was a Scarborough Arts Juror’s Choice winner three years running (2015-2017).
Brandy is a member of the Lead Team and an Editor/Storyteller for the international creative blog, Grryo.com (#wearegrryo).
His images have been published in PhotoEd and Zettel magazines and in three volumes of the Scarborough Arts “Big Art Book”.
His art is found in private and corporate collections across Canada. He currently works and lives in Toronto.
