A Boston native from a working class family, Branden Darius Brown Harrington always had a creative outlook on life. For better or for worse, art is Branden's passion. At 6 years of age, Branden took up illustration, creating his own comics for the next two years. Soon after, Branden's mother bought him a video camera and his journey as a filmmaker began. At age 14 Branden was was accepted into the Fast Forward teen film program at the Institute of Contemporary Art, where he worked as a filmmaker until he graduated from high school. Branden also joined Urbano's Young Curators, where he was exposed to many other artistic media through a multi-year teen-led event series. Through this project Branden was able to go on a cultural arts trip to Paris, France.
After graduating from high school, Branden worked as a teaching assistant at Urbano and at Fast Forward. Currently, Branden is associated with many different arts collectives, and recently joined acclaimed international arts group "The Biennial Project." He plans to launch an independent "Creative Label" in the summer of 2012. Branden would like to thank the Urbano Project for all the work they have done to enrich his life, and what they continue to the next generation of aspiring artists.
