I started following an art gallery on Pinterest, and they are always posting amazing pieces of art. This led to my discovery of the artist Stricher Gerard. I love the bright colors and bold brush strokes in these paintings. I think you guys are really going to like them, too!
His story is actually pretty neat, too. He grew up in France and knew he wanted to be a painter. He became ingratiated into the “cafe society” of painters, and spent time going to gallery openings, and sold a few paintings, but he ultimately decided to go on the industry side of the business. He traveled the world and became a well known manager. The experiences he had, and the world he saw eventually helped define his style of art when he ventured back in to painting again. Awesome, right? One more for good measure!
