Seattle Arts Guide for the rest of us
Brandon Zebold is an artist working and living in Seattle’s Central District. His studio is located in a vintage 1920’s bungalow where he creates massive steel sculptures, rugged, yet delicate.
Brandon started out drawing, but slowly his work evolved from drawing on paper to drawing on steel.
Brandon’s work has been commissioned by such diverse groups as
- Bellevue Public Library, Hotel Parisi in La Jolla, CA
- Heller,Ehrman, White & McAuliffe, the City of Redmond
- Safeco, Zymogenetics, and the University of Washington.
Brandon lives with his art, and you’ll see examples of his diverse portfolio displayed in many rooms of his home.
His studio is located in the lower level of the home, and his large backyard serves as a gallery for his massive outdoor steel sculptures.
To view more of Brandon’s work, view his design portfolio and contact him about viewing or commission, you can visit his website, www.ZeboldStudios.com.
