Artist Gregory Wilhelmi
Describing his style as contemporary realism, Wilhelmi follows a long tradition of utilizing light and color with a stylistic flair. Short, quick brushstrokes and a bold use of highlights, create a sense of movement and energy that flows through his paintings. Often his use of streams and paths lead the viewer deep into his creative vision of sunlight forests and fields. Wilhelmi's cityscapes are equally compelling, presenting the viewer with a more profound and complex emotional view of what they may not have noticed as they passed by. Gregory Wilhelmi is a proficient and prolific painter, who began his career as an illustrator and graphic designer more than 40 years ago. He attended Montana State Universiy and the University of Denver in pursuit of a degree in fine art. Later he became a tenured faculty member at the Colorado Institute of Art. Wilhelmi's work is represented in hundreds of corporate and private collections. His paintings reflect a wide variety of life's explorations and travels, encompassing studies of Europe, Mexico, the Caribbean, and his favorite subject, the American West.
