Miami-based, mixed media artist Greg Beebe found his true calling in the art world when he began creating spontaneous and thought-provoking abstract works of art. Beebe’s earlier mediums of expression also included spray-painting graffiti, cartooning as well as sketching free hand imagery.
The self-taught artist, who is also a successful financial entrepreneur approaches his art practice with the same intention as he does his business interests…with an unstoppable impulse to create. The result is honest commentary that promotes the power of positivity and the pursuit of creation in any form.
Inspired by pioneering contemporary artists, such as Jackson Pollock, Gerhard Richter and Andy Warhol, Beebe’s unique style brings to life a mixture of abstract expressionism, pop and graffiti art and introduces a multitude of mediums ranging from sculptured objects, cement, iconic photographs, acrylics, spray paints, glitter and glass.
With a mind that is driven by diversity, Beebe is always looking for new ways to inspire himself and his followers. Whether it be through subliminal messaging or by his use of intense color combinations, heavy textures or unusual mediums, he looks to bring a piece to vibrant life and often times the message is left for the viewer to find.
Positive or energetic messaging is my key focus. I want to create artwork from a personal feeling of motivation or positivity. For example, seeing people work hard or working hard myself and achieving something is gratifying to me, so I want to create a piece of artwork that might give the viewer a piece of what I’m feeling.
