Hello, my name is Chad Shariak. I have been painting for about 6 years now and my love for it grows every day. Most of my work is very intuitive, full of lots of movement created by the placement of strong colors and lines. In a lot of my work I like to trace shapes with India ink to emphasis what I see, like a Rorschach test. I am very inspired by the abstract expressionism and impressionism movements. Some of my favorite artist are Arshile Gorky, Vincent Van Gogh, Joan Miró, Salvador Dali, Henri Matisse, and Jackson Pollock.
