~ About... the journey ~
For as long as he can remember, George had a passion for drawing and painting. Along with that passion was the creative ability to bring his imaginative aspirations to fruition. From cartoons of classmates, custom airbrush designs on his buddy's vehicles, to a variety of art paintings. Unforeseen at the time, the future life of a world-renowned artist was unfolding. A journey even he couldn't have imagined.
George's professional art career started soon after a short stint in college. He was more interested in his passion to create. His talent with an airbrush and pinstriping became widely known and soon he was doing the custom artwork on prize-winning vehicles and motorcycles. A chance meeting with daredevil Evel Knievel would bring a lifetime friendship and collaboration. George became Evel's artist. George created Evel's helmets and gas tank designs for Evel's most legendary feats.
In-between the high demand for doing motorsport designs, George's bigger passion for painting on canvas and other substrates grew stronger. Whether using oil, acrylic or watercolor, George created endless paintings with a variety of subject matters and styles. Other than George reproducing for exclusive collectors George's iconic designs that Evel Knievel paraded, most days are spent in his studio painting both commissioned and work for sale.
After many years of creating. His works are in museums, corporate collections, owned and enjoyed by countless celebrities and fine art lovers around the globe. George has been fortunate to spend his life doing what he's enjoyed so much, art and the opportunity to share his visions.
George was the featured artist in San Tropez, France as a guest of Harley-Davidson France in 2011.
