Drew Gaffney Artist Bio:

Abstract Expressionist art that's Dramatic, Colorful and Contemporary. He's inspired by the classic "Abstract Expressionists" and "Color Field" painters from the 20th Century. Sold internationally (into 7 countries), Drew has been painting and drawing since he was a teenager. His most recent solo show was in 2012, in Washington, DC. Carl Belz (director emeritus of Rose Art Museum) described one of his award-winning paintings: "Abstract art bespeaks freedom, for artist and viewer alike, but the best of it recognizes that freedom meaningfully exists only within limitations, thus the balance between spontaneity and order in this painting. As in life, so in art." Today, he makes affordable art pieces with acrylics, ink and plaster. Drew's art is 'jazzy'--his paintings express and convey emotion, are typically bright and up-beat and he wants the viewer to feel something. Yet, he typically doesn't title his pieces so that the viewer or buyer are not prejudged as to the intended emotion. His work is very colorful and has a strong graphic quality to its abstract nature. The visual elements and textures of flowers, architecture, fabrics, gardens and cityscapes are the raw ingredients which drive his inspiration, and they are often from his own photography. With each piece he aims to create something dramatic and interesting. Several artists and architects (mainly 20th Century Abstract and Abstract Expressionist painters) have long inspired his creativity, including Richard Diebenkorn, Willem de Kooning, Jules Olitski, Franz Kline, Clyfford Still, Gerhard Richter, Joan Mitchell, Jackson Pollock, Richard Meier, Santiago Calatrava, Robert A.M. Stern and Jack Tworkov. All of Drew's paintings offered through Saatchi come stretched/mounted and ready to hang displayed. However, he's willing to sell his paintings rolled up (unstretched) and packaged in a tube for a reduced price upon request. If you like a painting, please feel comfortable in making an offer to me; I'm very open to this way. [email protected]
