Grav Fedora Fine Art: About the Artist

I am a self-taught artist living and working in Asheville, NC. My subjects are often places close to home, people I know personally, or even the fish I catch from my kayak in Sarasota.

My goal with oil painting, is to elevate familiar and often ignored imagery into a higher art form. I am most inspired by the French Masters of the late 19th Century, and favor the wet on wet approach of oil painting "alla prima"; emphasizing tonal relationships with broad sweeps of a loaded brush. Painting from direct observation is challenging and often unforgiving, but the sense of immediacy it endows a painting is invaluable. Working from the round creates an intimacy between the subject and myself. This personal connection is paramount, and I just can't get that working from a photograph, isolated in a studio.

The line of “Icon Portraits” is the Pop Art version of my traditional painting style. Composed in only black and white, I use brushstrokes, contrast, and splatter on canvas to depict a wide variety of famous icons. These pieces have expanded my fan base through the influence and power of film, literature, and music. The style was born from my live art performance where, in a matter of minutes, I will paint an icon to music on stage. For example: a painting of Jim Morrison is completed live, within the 4 minutes it takes to play a Doors song. I have and continue to perform live across Florida. The pieces you see here are a slightly more polished version of the live act, but they are painted in the same spirit... to blaring music in my studio.
