Meet Gregg Chadwick of Santa Monica, CA.
Gregg Chadwick’s early memories of art come from a room of full of Rembrandts in Amsterdam.
His family was newly reunited after his military dad’s extended absence and he was overjoyed at being together again.
“Everything seemed to make sense in that light-filled room and I knew then that art was powerful and that I wanted to learn how to be an artist. I haven’t stopped learning since.”
Several decades later, Gregg is a successful artist with paintings included in the collections of the Adobe Corporation, the Gilpin Museum, the Graciela Hotel – Burbank, the Harbor Court Hotel – San Francisco; the Kimpton Group’s headquarters in San Francisco, the National Museum of the Marine Corps, Nordstrom Company Headquarters, the W Hotel Hollywood, and Winona State University.
The ongoing beauty in the struggles and triumphs of the human existence inspires his artistic production. Keeping Dave Isay’s phrase “Listening is an act of love” in mind, he opens himself to others’ stories.
He combines those stories with his own memories, dreams, and desires to create images that resonate with our lived existence.
