Artist of the moment……..Gary Komarin



Gary Komarin is an American abstract artist. Gary Komarin was born in New York City in the year 1951. The artist attended Albany State University located in Albany, New York. Komarin went on to earn a M.F.A. in painting from Boston University.

One major influence on the artist was Philip Guston, whom he studied with whilst in college. Komarin enjoys using a very colorful palette, which he somewhat adopted from this key mentor.

Komarin doesn’t paint on traditional canvas or art materials. Instead he prefers non art industrial canvas. He will also paint on drop cloths. For paint he creates his own “paint” using latex, spackle, and water.

The artist reminds me a great deal of American artist Barry McGee. McGee also enjoys working with caricatures of very emotional and expressive human faces.
