Gordon Skalski – Q1 Art Competition – Artist Portfolio Magazine
My name is Gordon Skalski. I am a representational artist/illustrator from Southern California. As an artist, I’m primarily self taught with some college and atelier training. I work in many different mediums (oils, acrylics, charcoals, pastel, ink etc) and I love to challenge myself with new tools and techniques as much as possible. My personal philosophy on art is pretty straight forward. I absolutely love the creative process on every level. The struggle and emotion that is poured into each work is such a beautiful way of making a connection with the viewer. The way of looking at things from a different perspective and being able to create this illusion of my minds vision that can be thought provoking and hopefully inspiring is what drives me through each piece.
