Bio

Glenn Murray is a traditionally trained, contemporary realist painter known for his striking depictions of classic americana. His paintings invite viewers to enter the scene and recall a feeling. Primarily a studio painter, he works mainly in oil and acrylic. He creates his paintings using traditional methods of laying down thin transparent washes of color to reach the result. Glenn continues to explore classic themes intent on sharing an American vision with others. His work is included in private collections and has received numerous awards in national and international competitions. Glenn is currently the president of the Academic Artists Association.

“When I was young, I would spend hours looking at the way light and shadow played upon various objects. Color and function fuel my love of classic American styles. Starting with photographs as a reference, I imagine the stories behind my paintings and apply layers of paint to create a unique effect. If you can recall a feeling from viewing my painting, then I have done my job!”
