“Here was art with a purpose – communicating issues about humanity, from gun violence and racism to social welfare.  These images were speaking to thousands, and in some cases, millions of people.  I learned that the publishing world could be a powerful platform as well as an industry to work in.” – Greg Spalenka

Greg covers his art career from the beginning to present starting with his childhood.  He not only fell in love with science fiction, but art of the late 1800s, the Gothic and Renaissance periods.  Greg maybe about abstract art and experimentation, but he is also a staunch believer in studying your craft and art history.

Greg01Greg’s art is not for everybody, he’s not a mega-popular artist like a Jim Lee in the comics world.  Greg’s art is surreal, experimental and haunting.  Like a music snob, if you like Ariana Grande and One Direction and sitting dumbfounded looking at Greg’s artwork then you know it’s not for you.  If you do know Greg Spalenka’s background and his art then it will cause you to reflect, feel emotions, and ponder on things and this is the career and collection – The Art of Greg Spalenka: Visions From The Mind’s Eye.
