Awesome Acrylic Artists….. Gus Heinze…


This is a great artist that was born in Germany in 1926. He is best known for his photo realistic style and painting of reflection.

Studied at the Art Students League of New York.

The artist worked as a commercial artist in the 50s and 60s. In the 1970s he moved to Vermont and started painted hyper realistic works of the time period. Notice the Cadillac reflection piece, many works like this were done of New York. Using small parts from cars and motorcycles.

In 1978 he moved to California and started painting store fronts.

I enjoy this artist as his technique and end product are great. Especially enjoying are his reflection pieces, I always look for myself in the works!

He works with acrylics on canvas, gessoed board, and sometimes masonite.

Has had many shows at Bernarducci Meisel gallery in New York.

Happy painting!
