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. Reagan is a true outsider artist as he has no formal training. However, art is in his blood as he is the great nephew of acclaimed New York artist George Schneeman.
