Grady H. Pennington did not follow his dream of being an artist until later in life. He worked as a graphic artist and teacher in Texas and he had a studio in town. But it wasn’t until he relocated to Murray, Kentucky that he allowed himself to do what he loves: paint all day, every day.
He says this about his work:
I have been inspired by so many artists but Pablo Picasso is my favorite. I consider myself to be an abstract expressionist but my work is always changing as I experiment with different mediums. I am also a photographer and I like to combine my photos with my paintings to create composite illusions.
In 2017 I traveled to Barcelona, Spain, and Paris, France to see Picasso’s museums, Salvador Dali’s museum, and all the incredible museums each city had to offer. The trips impressed and influenced my work and me beyond words.
