The Portland Art Scene
Some may say that the Portland Art scene is dead, but I prefer to think of it as an up and coming venue. Why else would I move from New York City, art capital extraordinaire, to this "green" filled city? To find art, of course.
The first artist that I have come across is George Perrou , a "self-taught" artist whose geometric patterns and bold color palettes are reminiscent to Josh "SHAG" Agle, another west coast artist I adore.
One can purchase his artwork at his website: http://studioperrou.googlepages.com/
Or at Etsy, naturally!
