Featured Artist Brett Stager

January 7, 2016

Brett Stager is a Columbus, Ohio native and a graduate of Franklin University where he earned a Bachelor of Science degree.  Beginning at a young age he was interested in building and creating items ranging from model cars, airplanes, to electronic kits. This led to motorcycle engines, car engines, and virtually anything hands on. By the time Brett was in high school he excelled in art and metal shop.  Around this time he grew an interest in weightlifting.  After high school he became a competitive power lifter and started a job in construction and roofing which further sparked his desire to create. His job exposed him to various materials and trades including metal, wood, concrete, welding etc.

Brett has no formal artistic training; however it seemed like a natural transition to sculpture as he experimented with the materials at hand. He kept his talent quiet until landing in a couple of magazines in 2013, including a feature in City Scene. This led to a full feature on The Good Day Columbus where his talent was broadcasted for the first time. He has since donated pieces to help raise funds for several charities. With no medium off limits, and an ever increasing passion to create, this powerlifting “Construction Guy” surprises many with his artistic abilities.
