For our March show in the Main Gallery, we will be showing the abstract paintings of George Fatseas. Currently an abstract artist, George’s medium is oil paint. Before his epiphany about a year ago, he was an impressionist, expressionist, realist, portraitist and more. What has always been a constant is his use of color to define paintings and elicit emotions. Many of George’s recent paintings have been triptych canvases where he uses color to tie the three panels together.
George had some formal training in college and continued to paint upon graduation. Years went by when he didn’t have the time or energy to paint, but he continued his studies through videos and online seminars. About twenty years ago, he had more time and energy and he started to paint in earnest; putting to canvas the backlog of cerebral creations.
George retired a few years ago and has started his full time job as an artist. He states, “I have always been an artist in my heart, and now I get to live my dream of painting all the images in my brain that accumulated when I couldn’t paint. I’m loving every minute of it”.
