Counterweight is a collection of images, observations, and concepts by artist/creator Rick O'Brien. For the last eight years, Rick has been a one-man art department in Hollywood, designing, constructing and painting sets and props for such clients as Victorias Secret, Luxor Las Vegas, Nikon, London IMAX, Konica, Tevo, Motorola, Honda, United States Postal Service, Proctor & Gamble, The Contender and The Apprentice. Compiling stunning, rich imagery from experiences, environments and the emotions perceived on these diverse projects, as well as from his everyday life, Rick captures the human condition like no one else. Nationally recognized by the Society of Illustrators, OBriens art has placed both gold and bronze and has received much acclaim and print exposure in various publications. Through traditional mediums ranging from egg tempera and oil to gouache, wood, ink, resin, and plaster, Counterweight beautifully scrutinizes Man and his journey, showcasing captivating images that unequivocally resound OBriens motto, Fortitude.
