The Divide

Bio

Richard Grieco, is a true cultural icon. He is best known for his work as an actor, writer, director, musician and artist.

Richard Grieco, first began his passion in the art world close to 20 years ago. At the start of his career he began painting to capture underlining emotions he couldn’t quite express throughout his other talents.

As time progressed he started painting from the subtext of the subconscious, which is the purest form of emotion instead of the literal, which can become contrived. And over the last four years he has kept a very low profile to aggressively concentrate on his work.

Although his work most often categorized as abstract, you will also see forms of expressionism, surrealism, and cubism just to name a few. Combining the greatest art qualities of many art styles has resulted in a cultivating style of art in its own right that he has coined “Abstract Emotionalism.”

Today his art work is all over the world as well as sought after by numerous collectors. Richard Grieco sums it up best by saying: “My work is capturing lightening in a bottle, it’s a pure unbridled emotion. I am a painter who puts his emotions on canvas and honestly my work is as much part of my life as breathing.”
