Mr. O'Brien spent the formative years of his life performing with his family in circuses throughout the United States, including the Ringling Bros. and Barnum and Bailey Circus, Clyde Beatty Cole Bros Circus, and the Shrine Circus. When his parents retired from the stage and settled in Central Florida, Liam continued to perform, but this time as a costumed character at Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom.

For over ten years Mr. O'Brien worked as a scenic artist and painted sets and backdrops for various amusement parks, retail stores, and stage shows. Select projects include: M&M Museum (Las Vegas, Nevada), Jurassic Park River Ride at Universal Studio's Islands of Adventure (Orlando, FL), and Potbelly Sandwich Shop restaurants throughout the U.S.

Mr O'Brien moved to New York City in the early 2000's and worked in the fine arts as a production manager for a number of prominent visual artists including: Takashi Murakami, Michael Riedel, and Mickalene Thomas. The paintings that he helped produce with these artists are in a number of prominent art collections have been exhibited in galleries and museums throughout the world.

In 2013, Mr O'Brien started creating hand painted signs and murals for local businesses and restaurants. This pursuit started with a web page and a hand full of flyers... but slowly his craft garnered more interest and opportunities. Select clients include: The Guggenheim Museum, The Brooklyn Museum, and the David Zwirner Gallery. A hand painted sign can offer a business a level of sophistication and charm that cannot be captured in vinyl; each sign is its own unique work of art!

Mr O'Brien currently lives/works in Brooklyn, NY with his wife and young daughter. He enjoys going to the movies, fixing things, and painting/drawing (obviously).
