My art is a reflexion of my soul Sacred moments of inspiration Given life by imagination A glimpse of something rare, in a world consumed by conformity Universal consciousness unveiled exposing a free spirit Glenn Gallegos
Biography: GLENN GALLEGOS : BIOGRAPHY I was born in the San Fernando Valley, California in 1953. My father is of Native American and Spanish descent; my mother is of French and English descent. My father has a natural gift for drawing and taught me at an early age the use of chalk, pencil and paint. When I was twelve, my parents divorced and I moved to Boston with my mother. While I was in Boston attending junior high school, I was selected to attend the school at Boston’s Museum of Fine Arts for a year. I was taught the theories of color, design and perspective and was able to roam the Halls of the Masters. I developed a great admiration for the Masters’ works. At the age of seventeen, I joined the Navy where I spent four years on a submarine off the Russian coast. On completion of my naval service, I used my G.I. Bill to enroll in the New England School of Art and Design, Newbury Street, Boston. During this three-year period, I majored in graphic design and acquired a solid foundation in design. I graduated in 1976 and returned to California. At this point I realized that my heart was that of a painter, not that of a graphic designer. I enrolled in the Otis Parson Art Institute in Los Angeles where, under the instruction of Burne Hogarth, I studied anatomy and figure drawing for a year. My paintings have been displayed in galleries in Los Angeles and have been sold to private parties over the years.
