RENOWNED IMPRESSIONISTIC PLEIN AIR PAINTER!
ALSO A SUCCESSFUL HOLLYWOOD DIRECTOR & SCREENWRITER.
George is a Hollywood Screen Writer and Film Director and Producer with such well-known movie credits to his name as “Wise Guys,” “Bad Boys,” “Midnight Run, “ and Columbus Circle to name but a few ...however, George’s passion is painting. Passionate about painting since he was a teen, George apprenticed under renowned Russian painter George Cherepov and paints in his style today. An avid plein-air painter, you are likely to see George with his easel by the side of some California by-way painting a sweet country landscape or strawberry pickers in the field or cascading waterfalls. He paints quickly to capture the light on the scene before it changes and often completes several large paintings in the field before returning to his home studio. Impressionistic in style, his paintings are often large in scale and reflect the Russian school of art in color and vibrance. He documented his experience with George Cherepov in a commercial movie titled: “Local Color” - a wonderful way to learn something about George Gallo and painting as well.
