Artwork produced by local artists can provide your home a unique look that is not easily copied. You might be surprised to find that one-of-a-kind paintings and art pieces are more affordable than you think. I recently found a local artist who has a unique mixed media art form and I am proud to own one of these pieces. These unique paintings can add a splash of color and style to any room.
Greg Brown is a Dallas-based artist whose mission is to bring the designs of Gianni Versace back to life. Greg was the Versace menswear specialist at Neiman Marcus in the 1990’s,
After Gianni Versace's death in 1997, Greg started collecting the ties, which Gianni himself designed, and are now referred to as pre-death ties. Each painting has a tie wrapped around and attached to become one with the canvas. Over the past decade, Greg’s paintings have been shown in galleries in the United States, as well as the American Airlines’ Admirals Clubs in Miami and Chicago. Most recently, he obtained representation in Israel.
Collectors continue to enjoy his designs and look forward to new ones. Only so many can be made, though, depending on the availability of the pre-death ties. Greg wants people to smile when looking at his works and remember the contribution Gianni Versace made to the fashion and art world.
