Graham Gillmore

The Canadian painter Graham Gillmore┬áis my favorite contemporary artist. He is brilliant in his ability to capture emotion using common phrases — to dissect them and and manipulate language to reveal a mysterious new meaning. Visually, it is impossible to get tired of his paintings. They are gorgeous, layered, massive and intricate — and literally blow you away in person.
