About the artist
Gary began his career in graphic design with an associate’s degree in visual communications, then received his BFA from Herron School of Art & Design in 2016 which allowed him to move his work into a more self-expressive form. He is a painter and a sculptor creating works on canvas and ceramic sculpture, often using non-traditional substrates and an incongruous mix of different media. His work references urban street art, art history, and hip hop culture. Gary describes his work as very “take-charge” with loud, aggressive, and vibrant riffs that pour from his heart and soul. Gary joined Arts for Learning’s roster of teaching artists in March 2020.
