At a young age, Brecht began documenting Southern California surf culture, both in the water and out. Brecht’s move to Manhattan, and his attendance at Parsons/The New School, encouraged artistic exploration - the scope of his work broadened and evolved into a distinctly cinematic and painterly form. Brecht's youthful So Cal energy is evident in his ability to relay the essence of an idea in a vivid and fluid style. His work also displays a level of intimacy and sensitivity - the capture of a fleeting emotion, a private moment. Working in both motion and stills, Brecht has worked with major ad agencies from idea conception through execution and has built a client base including brands such as Behr Paint, Sleep Number, SoHo House, Richer Poorer, Warner Brothers and Netflix.
