Since 1973, artists across Chiswick, Hammersmith and Shepherds Bush have been welcoming the public into their houses, studios and flats, to view paintings, glass-making, ceramics, printmaking, sculpture, photographs, textiles, and jewellery – through the cherished Artists at Home open studios event.
Bran Sivas is a painter and drawing artist based in Chiswick. He produces works of oil and charcoal focusing on studies of still life, portraiture, and the human figure.
Describing his work, Bran said: ‘I work mostly in oil and charcoal focusing on studies of still life, portraiture, and the human figure. My work is representational but with an abstract leaning. My process includes both alla prima and a more layered indirect approach.
‘In parallel with the progression of my personal body of work I also happily undertake commissions – not only portraits but a wide variety of subjects and ideas.’

From 2020, Artists at Home have also been welcoming visitors all year round – online. On their website you can browse artists’ work, make enquiries and save your favourites. If you wish to purchase something you can do this directly with the artist through via an enquiry form.
Bran Sivas is located in Studio 2 – 7 Seymour Road, W4 5ES.
