VH1 #YOK presents SCOPE #ArtistsOnTheRise: Check out the final visual artist video, introducing Brent Birnbaum.

Learn what drives the artist and about his work is this final video of the series, then head down to #SCOPEMiami 2012 to see the work for yourself next week!

Brent Birnbaum’s works at first appear as an encyclopedic collection of irreverent pop-culture, paraphernalia-like windup toys, matchbooks from lost saloons or discarded sneakers. An obsessive collector of bric-a-brac, Birnbaum repurposes these items as allegories for religion, love and politics.
