Art at the Market (feat. Briana Augustus)

Join St. Roch Market New Orleans in our monthly celebration of the arts! Each month, we showcase the talent of a local artist and a gallery of their work, with pieces available to purchase. Enjoy on-the-house whiskey tastings and half-off all whiskey drinks when ordered from a seat at The Mayhaw, plus dining selections from the market’s diverse lineup of award-winning vendors.


Briana Augustus is a New Orleans born photographer, painter, writer and filmmaker. Raised in Tennessee, she earned her B.A. in Communications and Film/Video Production at the University of Memphis, before moving back to her Louisiana hometown. She professionally established herself under her BRIANA AUGUSTUS DESIGN brand in freelance event photography, filmmaking and digital marketing while pursuing her other creative ambitions.

Influenced by her study of storytelling through film, much of her stylized photography reflects the concept of moments in motion. She interprets the relativity of time through a lens of subject distortion and abstraction. This theme drives her unconventional mixture of mediums in her paintings - such as acrylics and oils - to create textural and multidimensional effects.

With a mother as a largely self-taught painter, Briana followed in her footsteps and exercises her lack of a traditional art education to pursue a path all her own. Learning mostly from mentors and self-study, she often looks to classical artists that pushed the mold of their time for inspiration. Offering a new way to think and feel about things people have already made up their minds about - that pursuit is what guides her journey.

Based in New Orleans, this "creator with many hats, traveler of many paths" continues her variety of freelance work and can occasionally be found around town reading her literary work. You can learn more about her multimedia artistry at
