Greg Gandy

American B. 1980

 

 

B. 1980 in Turlock, California; Currently lives in San Francisco, CA

 

Greg Gandy is a realist painter from central California who resides and works in San Francisco.  He earned two Bachelor's degrees prior to moving to San Francisco, where he earned a Master's Degree from the Academy of Art University, SF, CA in 2007.

 

Primarily known for his meticulous and detailed compositions of San Francisco and the still life, Gandy’s oil paintings are extraordinarily time consuming, and the results are sublime. He enjoys depicting urban scenes in every conceivable light, from blazingly sunny days to romantic night scenes. In his words,  “It’s my way of documenting the city—a place that is so personal to me, My paintings are like a diary of sorts.”
