THE ARTIST:
Gregory Auerbach hails from New Jersey where he grew up without ever visiting the Jersey shore. (He finally went after prom, but that was without his date because he didn't really know how to talk with women back then.)

His work consists mostly of spray paint over mixed-media, often with reclaimed materials ranging from shiny bullets to dirty newspaper clippings. He wants to change the world, he'll hopefully at least make a dent, and his mother is very proud of him.

Greg's newest series is called Future: No Future and depicts scenes of ongoing world travesties and their repercussions (i.e. child homelessness, global warming, and human trafficking.) His previous series, Hollywood Graffiti, is ongoing and started with famous Hollywood icons over relative collage. It's since expanded to showcase Greg's heroes, varying from musicians to revolutionaries.

He received his BFA from the School of Visual Arts in New York City.

HOLLYWOOD GRAFFITI:
The series consists of famous film icons spray painted over a collage of materials that relate to the specific person's career, interests, life and art.
(For Example: Alfred Hitchcock is spray painted over vintage murder and mystery headlines on newsprint from the 1800's-1960's.)

ARTIST'S STATEMENT:
Everyone loves film. Since the advent of cinema, films have amazed the world. They allow us to set aside our day to day and fall into fantastic worlds and wondrous lives. They let us escape our reality, fall into another, and have a truly amazing experience. Films entertain us. They teach us. They make us laugh and they let us cry.

The purpose of Hollywood Graffiti is to honor cinema by way of some of the actors and directors that contributed to making the movies that I love. I think that these individuals, (among countless others), have contributed greatly to making cinema what it is today. and that all of these persons have helped to make films that will forever stand testament to the greatness of storytelling and the power of the motion picture.
