Austin Gregory Ohm
Whether painting, sculpting or creating in the digital
realm, my art is a response to the world around me. I use my art to pay tribute and homage to the important people, places, spaces, animals and events in my life. In return my aim is that my art helps people understand me better. I think creativity and problem solving is fun. I create my own puzzles and find unique solutions. I’m looking for visually and intellectually stimulating results. I also see my art as a personalized record of history. I record not only what I see, but what I feel, think, and experience emotionally. My art is also about my curiosity of the world. As a student and teacher, I investigate both the material and spiritual world with my art, bridging the gap between them. My art often inhabits a dream-like environment where odd connections are common place and experimentation is limitless.

All the Towers are inspired by shapes and movement found in nature. The sculpture is not complete until it has found a personal equilibrium with nature.

The posture of this sculpture resembles a suit of samurai armor.
Custom designed Knights for the English Inn Restaurant Door County, WI The Horses: •Painted fiberglass horses to appear bronze. •Designed and fabricated all the equestrian armor. •Design influenced by a combination of English and Spanish armor. The Knights: •Ordered real armor from England. •Adapted each knight to hold a sword and gas burning torch. •Built armatures to support the suit of armor sitting on top of the horses. •Painted with automotive quality paint to protect against the outdoor environment.
“I shall never be fool enough to turn knight-errant. For I see quite well that it’s
not the fashion now to do as they did in the olden days when they say those famous knights roamed the world.”

Art for All
Tsunami The Prescott Downtown Mural Project unveiled its first community art project on September 14th and 15th, 2007, the “Art for All” mural. This 1400 sq. ft. mural boldly portrays Prescott’s dynamic heritage. Focusing on the role of the arts over the past 150 years, the mural illustrates Prescott’s pioneer tradition, the rich theater history, the accomplishments of cowboy artists, and the contributions of the arts in present day Prescott. Behind the Historic Whisky Row Alley the mural, complete with a gem studded mosaic, takes one back in time to wild western vaudeville, brings to life the songs of the lovesick cowboy, and highlights some of Prescott’s oldest traditions; the 4th of July parade and a lively square dancing celebration. In a growing arts destination, the “Art for All!” mural welcomes visitors to sample Prescott’s heritage and living culture.
