About Nathan Von Braun
New York based Nathan Von Braun launched his eponymous art brand in 2016. Nathan first discovered his love of sketching and drawing during his high school years in Wisconsin, leading him to later attend the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising in Los Angeles, where his skills would further develop and flourish. Inspired by his upbringing in the Midwest and his devoted interest in femininity and modern city-life, Nathan consistently incorporates his natural talent with the fundamental learnings of fashion illustration into his designs that emerge as meticulously detailed, powerful sketches that are opulent, non-traditional, and profound.
Nathan’s debut collection titled, The Zodiac Gala, is inclusive of a twelve-portrait series reflecting the distortion of society’s self-image induced by the acceptance of the western zodiac as an identity dogma. To Nathan, art is more than a wall embellishment; each illustration represents creative clarity on life’s unexpected and haphazard blueprint, resulting in creations meant to be felt by those who possess them.
Nathan’s large-scale murals can currently be found throughout New York City in showrooms, corporate headquarters, and the facades of buildings in Brooklyn- most recently featured in The New York Post. Past notable clients of his include the NBA, Ralph Lauren, Under Armour, Victoria’s Secret, Champion, and The Box Hotel.
Nathan is currently available for privately commissioned pieces upon request.
