I am an established Bay Area muralist and painter and have been creating murals nationwide since 1974. I am quite versatile, my style ranging from surreal to Trompe l’Oeil, whimsical to realistic and can be adapted to any project requirements. My personal surrealist work (available to view at elgallosurrealist.com), as well as my mural projects, reflects my ability to produce innovative and unique imagery and concepts.
My work has appeared in many publications, including books (including “Painted Ladies Revisited,” “San Francisco in Photographs,” “Grand Entrances”), magazine and newspaper articles, and has also been featured on television news. My experience is wide, ranging from large public pieces, such as the “Jazz” Mural in North Beach, San Francisco, to smaller pieces in museums (such as the Maxfield Parrish Museum in Vermont), businesses and private homes.
I’ve been an artist all my life. I studied Fine Arts in college, but when I discovered Leonardo Da Vinci’s notebooks, I found I could learn more from those than from any art school. From that point on, I continued to learn techniques from studying the Old Masters and from nature itself.
