ABOUT

 

    My name is Austin Blue and I'm a San Francisco native currently living in Atlanta. I've been drawing most of my life but have just picked up painting in the past few years and realized i really have a passion for it. My most commonly used mediums are acrylic, oil paints, and spray paint. My work is generally a juxtaposition of geometric shapes and varying colors/ gradients and layers, usually in contrast with the actual subject (such as a human portrait or animal). I try to explore a new technique or theme such as space or depth with each piece that i make, constantly striving to learn and better myself.

 

    My goal is to make an impact on others lives with my work while simultaneously learning and drawing inspiration from those that i meet along my journey. I want to inspire others to tap into their inner creative.
