Artist Greg Manchess

August 18, 2009

Sidebar has recently interviewed artist Greg Manchess.  Manchess talks about his days in art school, struggling to find teachers who taught art rather than philosophy, and his formative years working alongside Gary Kelly at Helmut Design.  Greg also talks about his many projects, his artistic process, and current career situation.


Greg is not a believer in the popular idea of talent.  A rare few actually have something we would call talent. For most of us excellence comes through strong training and hard work.  This is an important lesson that would save many art students from stalling their artistic growth.

There is also an excellent article Subtle Distinctions that interviews Greg about his sensibilities and approach to painting.  This was originally published in Step by Step Graphics magazine.
