Gordon Solomon Gallerywww.ArtPal.com/gordonsolomon
Gordon Solomon; Artist, musician, author and teacher was born and raised in Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands during the late 70's.
Gordon, a Caymanian artist who is best known for his “Spots of light” technique has no formal training as an Artist, but has worked diligently for years nurturing his talent to create works of art that jolt viewers, intrigues and invites them to stay a while longer and journey into his world.
Beginning in the mid nineties, his first use of oil in paintings were inspired by calligraphy and graphic design which he enjoyed doing in his spare time. He knew he was an artist from a young age and developed his skills on his own; he continues to unearth his talent. Gordon also worked for many years with outreach programmes, charities and with the National Gallery of the Cayman Islands; he enjoys teaching art and is proud of his heritage - looking to the future by observing his/the islands past.
Gordon studied Building Science, Construction, Architecture Design and Traditional Hand lettering at a local college. He uses this knowledge in his current works of buildings and maritime subjects, and as of recent merged his graphic skills with his abstract ideas.
“The imminent efflorescence of the Caymanian arts literally stands on the shoulders of giants like Gordon Solomon who singlehandedly carried the arts through the desert to the brink of the Promised Land where we now stand”. –Badir Awe, Awesome Productions CEO, Board Member of the Cayman Islands Film Commission (CIFC), Organizer Poinciana Festival
