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.
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.
