(b. 1957, Washington, DC, U.S.A)
Gregory Burns' passion for art began when he was growing up in Paris, where he created comic strips and painted bottles of Beaujolais. He travelled to Asia, where he settled in Taiwan to study Chinese brush painting and calligraphy with local masters for two years.
Through a 16-month journey, he backpacked through China, Tibet, India and Pakistan. It was also then that his artwork reflected the different religion and architectural imagery of Asia.
Being an avid traveller, it has helped expand Gregory's horizon so that he may introduce a more diverse collection of colours and imagery to be applied to his art.
