Ok, I know it's so damn corny to quote somebody just to describe yourself, let alone Confucius, but this quote says all about my relationship with Widewalls, so forgive me for doing this: Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life. Am I forgiven?

Greg Dickerson is an American artist, known for expressing his artistic vision through the use of tactile materials while creating his work in paint, on both canvas and wood panels.

Dickerson was born in 1973 in Cleveland, Ohio where he spent his childhood. Greg received his BFA at Edinboro University in Pennsylvania while he earned his MFA at Minneapolis College of Art and Design.

Greg’s artistic idea involves the exploration of the relationship between elements and materials and their interaction. The idea of immediacy in this artist’s conceptual process is what it’s completely authentic about his work. Greg uses graphic mark-making with an array of fabrics while manipulating color, line and complex patterns. The elements lead to areas of spatial reference and anthropomorphic imagery.
