Brian Feni is a man with two hats - a painter and a soccer player.

Brian grew up in a fishing community so he started out by spending most of his young life fishing and barely spent any time doing any art. It all started with soccer and then gradually developed the soccer skills into artistic skills with his hands.

In high school Brian taught himself how to draw and paint by teaching himself through reading and practice. Currently Brian spends half of his time playing football, and the other half painting for a living.

Brian is an excellent portrait painter and does a lot of painting of the environment and local culture.

He comes from Malaita Province in Solomon Islands.
