Greg Minah

Baltimore, Maryland’s Greg Minah is an abstract painter who has created his own unique process of painting. He pours thinned out acrylic paint on a flat canvas and then spins and tilts the canvas to manipulate the flow of the paint. He adds layer upon layer in this same manner and often times removes the layer partially with pressurized water, usually leaving an outline behind. Each layer is a series of decisions as to what color to add next, where to pour it and how to guide the paint. The controlled chaos of the many layers of looped colors, shapes and lines make these paintings intriguing.
