My name is Brian Joseph but I am also called “Bydeeman” because I paint and share the philosophy of the fictitious Bydee People that I created with my first painting on September 9, 1986.
All the items I sell (originals, prints, books, cards and t-shirts) display colorful images of the Bydee People. I have been in business for almost 30 years as the owner of Bydee Art Gallery. Presently I only sell my art online because of the convenience and flexibility it allows me. Bydee means Bringing You Delightful Entertaining Experiences.
