Derrick Breidenthal has been developing and producing fine art for over twenty-five years. His work has been showcased throughout the US. His art is heavily influenced by rural America. The combination of severe space, light and color in Derrick’s work reveal much more than the precise site itself. Vibrant and enthusiastic to traumatized and bare; these are the landscapes that emerge in his work. Some permanent collections include The Faulconer Gallery, Grinnell, IA, H&R Block, Kansas City, MO, Kansas State University, Manhattan, KS, MMG Worldwide, Kansas City, MO, W Hotel Collection, Detroit, MI, and Viceroy Snowmass, Aspen, CO. Derrick is a Missouri native, moving back to Kansas City in 2004 after 10 years of living in Colorado. His studio is based in the Crossroads Art District in Kansas City, Missouri.
