Brent Nolasco is an American artist whose art involves constant evolution to new ideas and new forms. Progression and change are what he lives for. The art gives him the opportunity to create different situations and environments from the landscapes in his mind. He likes to break down and rebuild surfaces using various mixed media. "Everything in my life and art intermingle into harmony for me."

At one point he became a part of the vinyl scene and made it his own with his original customs and unique style. One of his fulcrum ideas is to reinvent and  constantly evolve his own perception and creative process in order to "stay" new, mainly to himself.

Nolasco was born in Long Beach, California. After high school he spent a year in Detroit at the Center for Creative Studies. As he says in his own words, time in Detroit helped him to  form his interest in ,most accurate definition is, industrialism. Parts of the urban landscape started to make their way into his artwork and project. Some of his themes dealt with the dehumanization of our world and neighborhoods. How the destruction of our environment will force human kind to evolve into machines, which will gradually result in  the switch form natural to mechanical and develop the technology in order to survive.

He uses a multi-faceted palette of mediums and surfaces. Drawing from organic and mechanical forms so viewer cannot always pin-point them as robots or animals. Nolasco states:"To me they are about life and interaction, a reflection of what I see day to day. As humans we long for acceptance and love and I believe that there is a force in us that seeks out these properties in others to make us whole. I love to push myself to come up with new ideas and characters and to discover new ways to express them."
