Brandon Stuart is, but not limited to, an interdisciplinary artist, technologist, and social entrepreneur. His creative approach to learning has helped to interconnect his knowledge of multiple fields in order to achieve "vocational intersectionality" and garner further professional skill sets. Together these disciplines provide him the basis to orchestrate projects which often bring together artists from different styles and modalities.
With graduate education centered on topics such as Meaning and Motive in Social Thought and Order and Chaos in the Natural World; interning with the East Asia-Japan Program at the Stimson Center in Washington, D.C. focusing on Japanese national security and nonproliferation in the Asia Pacific region; and culminating his graduate degree with his thesis paper entitled "Preserving Japan's 'Pacifist' National Identity: Historical Discourse & the Psychocultural Shame-Guilt Complex," Brandon has the cognitive, personal, and professional experience to responsibly lead this company.
He has served in the Episcopal Service Corps (ESC) in Los Angeles and helped to pilot the Collegiate Identity and Participation Model (CIPM), a college-readiness initiative created to address the educational needs of local underserved charter schools, which solidified his passion for educating students on the power of self-authorship. His work with the National Association of Secondary School Principals (NASSP) as an educational and ideational consultant further served as a catalyst for establishing Iconiclass LLC.
Brandon holds a Bachelor of Arts (BA) degree in Behavioral Biology and East Asian Studies from Johns Hopkins University and a Master of Liberal Arts (MLA) degree for intellectual freedom from the University of Chicago. He is a native of Detroit where he graduated from Cass Technical High School and commenced his eight-year study of Japanese Language. Since then he has gone on to study other foreign languages such as Spanish, Korean, French, Mandarin, Norwegian, Dutch, and Russian for the purpose of broadening his ability to connect with people outside of his native English-speaking culture.
One thing he hopes audiences learn through viewing his work is, any configuration of multidimensional, life-oriented engagement with the arts and academia can enable an individual to actualize their most vivid ideas through a combined artistic and scholastic mentality and perspective.
"If time intimidates you, then change how you view it.
Look at 'time' differently and it becomes just another 'item'."
"Everybody's faith is individualistic and predicated on a visceral piece of them that they must reconcile at some point or another. Collective faith turned religion is when those personal faiths cross and overlap bringing people together, even those who do not identify outright with the collective, but become predisposed to that religion due to social convention and the threat of ostracism."
"Self-similarity is in everything. We are beings of self-similarity and it shows in our behavior. From a telescopic level to the microscopic, we observe a natural predisposition to create, construct, and consume. Galactic clusters are cosmic metropolises are conglomerative populations are a group of T cells providing very intricately designed structure to each tier of life. It's all relative."
"When we discern the vibrations created from each pluck of the tether connecting us to our souls we will be able to hear the divine harmony of the Universe."
