Through his intricate paintings, George Charriez illustrates modern perceptions of the human condition, and he paints to inspire dialogue with his artistic commentary. Connecting to his viewer is key to Charriez. He chooses figures that are easily relatable in today’s society. Body language also plays into the concept of each piece. Strong, confident stances are prevalent.
Deriving inspiration from his artistic family, Charriez was focused on drawing and painting everything he saw around him from the time he was a young boy. He studied at Savannah College of Art & Design, after which he transferred to the Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, NY. The diversity of the Pratt campus exhilarated and inspired Charriez, and he studied and experimented with multiple modalities which he still employs in his painting today.
After studying Illustration and Communications Design from Pratt, he worked as an illustrator and industrial designer in NY. Being involved in major campaigns and developing a great degree of proficiency in precise detailed techniques have positively informed and impacted his artistic career.
His paintings continue to be exhibited in multiple art fairs both nationally and internationally, and he has gained great attention and success over the past decades. Charriez paints every day and continues to create new imagery and explore deep ideas in his studio in Atlanta, Georgia.
