George Gallo

George Gallo



George Gallo was born in 1956. He began painting at an early age and was especially attracted to landscapes as a way to express himself. He studied under the Russian master George Cherepov in Greenwich, Connecticut for three years.

Gallo's approach is to paint outdoors en plein air no matter the size of canvas.
He considers the act of painting a performance. He is very much inspired by the
works of Edward Redfield and Daniel Garber, both masters of the Pennsylvania Impressionist movement.

James Bullough

James Bullough




 James Bullough is an American born artist living and working in Berlin, Germany. His paintings, and huge monumentally scaled site-specific murals, are phenomenal combinations of realist painting technique and graphic punctuation. Inspired by gritty urban graffiti as a young artist growing up in Washington, DC, Bullough harnessed its energy in his work, and perfected a realistic oil painting technique from his study of the Old Masters. Combining the momentum of the one and the technical precision of the other, his work is about staging compelling contrasts and juxtapositions. Working in everything from oil, spray paint and ink on canvas, Bullough’s paintings strike a balance between realistic figurations and stylized interruption.
