We would like to inform you about new arrival of artworks by Gregory Siff at Guy Hepner in L.A. Gregory Siff is one of the most prolific and exciting artists in the contemporary art scene. Originally from Brooklyn, Gregory Siff moved to Los Angeles in 2009 looking to become a film star but he ended up doing art on the streets. Each one of his paintings tells a story. Gregory Siff’s simplified subject matter invokes an emotional response as childhood memories are adopted throughout his aesthetic. “I make paintings to hang on your wall, play characters you meet in your dreams, and write stories you heard when you were falling asleep as a kid. I am a force in the world like my father”, says Siff.
When working, he’s having a dialogue with the painting. Siff describes himself as a feel-good artist because he likes to paint in order to feel good about things. He works with the variety of media – canvas, found objects, paper, and clothing. His art is influenced by artists like Andy Warhol, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Vincent Van Twombly, Risk and Keith Haring.
