posted in: Artist biographies | 0

Greg Gossel was born in Baldwin, Wisconsin in 1982. He pursued an education at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire, where he graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in graphic design. In December 2005, Greg moved to Minneapolis, where currently works as a graphic designer. In addition to design, he is also dedicated to his personal work, and has been exhibiting his fine art nationally for the past two years. Greg says this about his work, “My work is about life, the struggle, and the beauty. I try to accomplish this through the interplay of many diverse words, images, and gestures. I’m interested in process, building up a surface and layering a variety of mediums; spraying, printing, splashing, erasing, dripping, and writing in a very loose and spontaneous way. When a piece is finished, I want it to illustrate a visual history of change, process, and expression.
