Brian Hanlon is a classically trained master sculptor and founder of Hanlon Sculpture Studio. With over 300 public and private art pieces since 1987, Hanlon is a nationally-acclaimed artist from Toms River, NJ, specializing in bronze statues and plazas. He is currently serving as the Official Sculptor for the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame. 

In creating his work, Hanlon’s goal is to educate others about the subject and inspire them to achieve greatness. Hanlon’s work translates seamlessly across all genres from liturgical to civic, public safety, and athletics because of his desire to learn and create meaningful, thought-provoking works of art.

Hanlon took graduate level courses towards a Master of Sculpture degree at Boston University from 1988-1990 and left school early to work as a sculptor full-time. Before attending Boston University, Hanlon completed a Bachelor of Arts in Art Education at Monmouth University in 1988.
