The portraits above feature musician Vusi Mahlasela & Senator John McCain. (And yes, Greg drew President Obama, too. His art is happily non-partisan). If you cannot see the portraits above, please switch from 'mobile' view to 'full' view mode on your phone (or view the website from a desktop/laptop).
Greg has created three collections of art - one with images, one with objects and one with words. The primary collection -- the one with images -- is known as My Sleepless Nights. It features portraits of historical, contemporary & cinematic figures who inspire us to think, act, serve, give & lead. The portraits feature a diverse cross-section of people like Nelson Mandela, Secretary of State Madeleine Albright (pictured here), Harriet Tubman, Gandhi, model/activist Christy Turlington, tennis star/activist Arthur Ashe, President John F. Kennedy & actor/philanthropist Michael J. Fox. The collection has been on exhibit locally, nationally & internationally, and featured in publications like Art World News. At times, he has been asked to speak about art at a school, museum or event in the U.S., Canada, the Caribbean or Africa. For instance, he delivered the Legacy Lecture at the SAJ Museum in Africa and Convocation at Fisher College. At a function in Canada, Greg received the Portraits in Humanity Award -- given to someone who has 'used the arts to make a difference'. In 2013, he served as keynote speaker at the 13th Annual Self-Employment in the Arts Conference. On the civic side, Greg's foundation has provided scholarships for college students with a focus on architecture & design. It also has funded a variety of grants for elementary, middle & high schools & nonprofit organizations -- to fund the purchase of art supplies. To see Greg's art, visit www.MySleeplessNights.com
