I AM. I am an immortal soul having a human experience. I have chosen my experience (this time!) to be as an artist – not just an any old undefined artist but as I declared out loud decades ago – a “great artist” (whatever that ultimately means).
I am currently residing in Peoria Illinois USA.
I like to paint wall sized oil paintings as I can get my whole body into the brush strokes. What you see after I am done is just the remains of the work – as the fine art is Me in the zone doing it!
My art style is what I call Psychedelic Surrealism. I like to start with a grisaille and then (sometimes) I use glazes to add color. I have found that oil paints allow the greatest range of expression for me and I have worked very hard at mastering this medium.
I was a resident artist at The Studios on Sheridan (Peoria Illinois) in 2016 and was a resident artist at The Speakeasy Art Center (Pekin Illinois) before that. I currently have a studio at home where I work on wall-sized work. I have had my work in many gallery shows but I do not have a CV – if you want to sell my work in your gallery – just ask me, either it’s good or it isn’t, a list of shows doesn’t make the work any better.
I have a life outside of being an artist of course. I have a day job in an office that means nothing beyond the bills it pays and the friends I have there.
I have a very talented and lovely girlfriend her website is here! https://hollyebgreen.com/
I can be commissioned for murals (or large size canvases) in the Central Illinois area but only for the subject matter that I like to paint. If you want a mural (or large size canvas) with allegorical figures, animals and organic motifs to move the chi energy then I am available to discuss this with you. I’m awesome and everyone knows it!
