Pearl Bryant was born in Pensacola, FL, and grew up on the Gulf Coast. She earned her BFA in Studio Art with a focus in painting and drawing at Auburn University. She currently lives and works in east Atlanta.
Her recent paintings focus on themes of maximalism and reuse referencing mass consumption and aesthetics. Bryant uses acrylic and nail polish palettes replete with stereotypically hyper-feminized colors and melds them with found objects and minute drawn details.
Her first solo exhibition debuted in 2019. Bryant’s piece H.V. II won Director’s Choice at Georgia Artists, a statewide juried exhibition. She has shown in juried and group exhibitions around Atlanta since 2016, including the upcoming High Rise Show opening on October 4th in downtown Atlanta.
