Bayou Gray is an American oil painter born and raised in Cleveland, Ohio. Although he pursued various forms of art all the way through young adulthood, (written, visual, and musical). He eventually conformed to social pressure and abandoned his artwork for a career in IT. As the fruits of a "normal life" eluded him, he eventually soured on the idea of conformity, and returned to his first love, broken and alone. Being technical and artistic however, his renewed dedication to his craft carries on undeterred.
As for artistic style, he focuses on three aspects in all his pieces. Visual contrast, compositional mood, and applied energy. With the feeling that too much time has been lost, he spends his time in his studio, creating and learning, expressing his emotions with paint every day.
