Artist Comments:
I love color.  By using small "tick" marks and blocks of color, I create emotion and beauty in my pictures.  I find joy in my work and my art allows me to communicate with others without using words.  The viewer learns about me through my pictures.

Ideas and Inspiration:  My "tick" marks are inspired by Van Gogh and other Impressionist's small paint strokes.  I use "tick" marks in unique ways rarely using them exclusively in a work. Picasso's cubist period has influenced my portraiture.  I find the cubist lines and bold colors inspiring.  

Education: Edina High School, Minnesota

Artist Statement: 

Born on July 6th, 1993 in St. Paul, Minnesota and creating art since 2009, Reagan is significantly influenced by van Gogh, Picasso, Mid-Century artists and Expressionism. Reagan has a passion for color, texture and the simplicity of an image. His work is expressive and inventive while innocent and sophisticated at the same time.  The sumptuous,unexpected array of color in Reagan's work, suggests the artist's relationship to synesthesia. Bright, electric color infuses his images as do short lines he defines as 'tick marks". Reagan's favorite subjects are portraits –both people and animals. The subjects of Reagan’s portraiture often depict a clear, sometimes striking, direct gaze. Eye contact is an interesting and reoccurring theme. Diagnosed with complex autism at age 2 1/2, Reagan's work offers him a means to illustrate his perspective of the world.
  

He has been selected as the featured artist for the 2012 University of Minnesota Amplatz Children's Hospital WineFest No. 17.

ArtExpo 2015 is not simply another Art fair. ArtExpo 2015 is an in-depth project where artists, art lovers, and art collectors can meet each other and see the links that exist between business and art. ArtMeet is proud to exhibit work from some of the best artists worldwide, and to present this international event in art and culture for visitors coming from around the world to Milano. We have been working on this idea since 2013, in order to coincide with an important event in Milano, and we have found the perfect location in one of the most interesting areas of the city. Many people representing institutions, artists, corporate and media partners will participate in ArtExpo. For this major event, we have chosen an interesting area of Milano, the Mecenate quarter, which is one of the most important areas in the city for events, culture, and for the entertainment industry. The studios of RAI (Italian Radio and Television) and those of SKY Italia, are also located here. We are right opposite the new Headquarters of Gucci too.
