Introducing The Bryan Maginn Collage Painting Collections
Created by Gold’s Gym Personal Trainer and Artist Bryan Maginn
What is a Collage Painting?
Collage Painting is the technique used by the Artist Bryan Maginn as his unique way of telling a story through images. Bryan begins with a central theme, such as a team’s logo or insignia that becomes the “hub” for his work and then uses a series of images around that hub to tell a story. The images are specifically selected from team history books, yearbooks and various publications to bring the team’s story and history to life in a unique way. Every detail of the collage painting is made from something that represents the team. The team’s uniforms play an important role as they supply a majority of the color palate for each piece. Bryan applies this theory to all of his collections using a central “hub” and related images to bring to life memories, history and a compelling story.
What Makes Bryan’s Work So Unique?
Bryan is a sports enthusiast who shares the passion of his work with the very fans whom he invites to give input to help shape his creations. Each piece takes months to complete as Bryan researches and studies the history of his subject. Bryan conducts in-depth interviews with the very fans who have “lived the story” over the years. Famous plays, iconic moments, special players, coaches, stadiums and more are selected to become the very images that tell the story. Bryan’s attention to detail coupled with the passion of the fans makes each piece a very unique and personal story. Bryan’s love of music is evident by his first piece in the music category, called “The Record Store”.
Making a Collage Painting
Once the central “hub” for the collage painting is selected, Bryan places all of the other selected images around the hub one by one until the story is complete. The final product comes together just like a puzzle. All of the images are then adhered to canvas with a special lacquer. The end result is a beautiful collage painting that brings the history and the story of the team to life from the Artist’s (and the fans) perspective.

About the Artist
Bryan Maginn earned his BFA from Kutztown University of Pennslyvania. Focusing on drawing, Bryan studied under George Sorrels, a well known landscape collage painter. Bryan was commissioned to do a New York Yankees piece for a friend for a 60th birthday present and from that original work, the Sports Collage Painting was born.
In addition to being an accomplished Artist, Bryan is also a certified fitness professional. He works at Gold’s Gym in Paramus, NJ where he pursues his second love – helping people achieve their fitness and nutrition goals. Bryan brings the same passion, caring and personal attention to his fitness career as he does to his artwork.
Bryan is currently researching several other genres for his collage paintings, including Music and Lifestyle. In addition to publishing his Sports and Music Collection, Bryan is available for commissioned work upon request.
