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 theaters. Select projects include: M&M Museum (Las Vegas, Nevada), Jurassic Park River Ride at Universal Studio's Islands of Adventure (Orlando, FL), Mouse Gears Emporium at Epcot Center (Orlando, FL), Houston Grand Opera's production of Salsipuedes (Houston, TX), and Bergdorf Goodman holiday windows on 5th Ave (New York, NY).
When Mr O'Brien moved to New York City he traveled the world as a production manager for a number of prominent visual artists. Artists include: Takashi Murakami, MR, Michael Riedel, and Mickalene Thomas.
In 2013, Mr O'Brien started creating hand painted signs and murals for local restaurants, bars, homes, and galleries. His business started with a web page and a hand full of flyers... but slowly his craft garnered more interest and subsequent opportunities. 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! Select clients include: The Brooklyn Museum, Sweetgreens, and the Brooklyn Robot Foundry.
Liam currently lives/works in Brooklyn, NY with his wife and young daughter.
