Poet and Author Sunreyes Signs "The Art of Life"




SUNREYES (Brian Downie)


SANTA BARBARA, CALIFOR NIA- Chaucer's Bookstore brings local writer Sunreyes (aka Brian Downie) for an evening of words and slam poetry from his book The Art of Life!

 A Unique Conceptual Book


This coffee table style art book is a collaboration of the author's drawings, photography, poetry, and more. The art is abstract, surreal, intentional, and often involves combining different concepts and abstract ideas. Sunreyes' hope is that his art inspires thoughts, feelings, and actions while ultimately helping others feel free to... feel free.

"This is an amazing book that provides an introduction to this artist’s work. There are beautiful drawings and photographs as well as essays, quotes, and poetry. This book shares journeys through dark valleys and sunny mountains, but is rooted in reality. I highly recommend!"  Tim Downie, Goodreads

 Sunreyes (Brian Downie)


Self-taught artist and teacher born and raised in the Seattle area for 25 years before moving to Southern California. I create art as a way to express emotions, process ideas, connect with others, and have fun. When I'm not teaching or creating art I like to hike, play/watch sports, listen to music, spend time with friends/family, and experience new things and places.-From the Author
