Brian K Scott and Brian K Jones joined artistic forces and created “Chuck & George” in 1990 at the University of North Texas in Denton. The duo eventually found their way to the Oak Cliff area of Dallas in 1996 where they continue to cohabitate and collaborate . “The Brians” and Chuck & George have been part of the Dallas/Fort Worth arts scene for decades including the 500X, Gray Matters, Mighty Fine Arts, The Conduit, The MAC, RO2 Arts, CentralTrak and occasionally the Webb Gallery in Waxahachie. They have maintained and operated the Oak Cliff Visual SpeedBump Art Tour since 2000. Their small home is their largest running collaboration and has been described as a “rave for your eyeballs”.
