Q. How have you developed your talent - through formal training or otherwise?

A. Because of my upbringing, being constantly around artists and art collectors, by the age of ten I thought I already had a profound exposure to what art actually was about for me. I wanted my art to originate in something more metaphysical which I would attempt to visually describe in the physical world. By the dawn of my teenage years every square inch of my available wall space was covered with my art. By the time I entered high school the concept that one could be taught how to create art literally did not make sense to me. I develop my own methods and style with lavish ongoing experimentation.

Q. How do you promote yourself? A. I started out as a street artist in Philadelphia which was a tremendous way to connect with collectors, gallery owners, and curators. Then I started searching the “Call for Artists” lists online and entered competitions. I use my own website, and Instagram: @linearartmix. I am also on Twitter: @garykoenitzer.

June 5th, 2016: Crane Arts In-liquid Art For The Cash Poor, Philadelphia July 19th - August 13th, 2016: Ceres Gallery, New York City • 37
