Hi, my names zeus cooney, about art and myself. How did i begin.....I only started about six years ago, like all atrists starting out, i had a belief somewhere within me i could paint,
all my life , but how do you express it. well by chance a friend told me he had an appointment with a gallery curator, so ou of the blue i said could i paint something and go along. That night i painted my first painting...at the gallery the curator picked mine out laid it on the floor and studied it for about an hour.. He stood up and said ever what he had in his wallet was mine get paint and canvas..i was a wad of notes that made me nearly faint...he said i was the style of chagall...i had never heard of the guy. That strted my hrist for paining...but i was only the begining of my walk...i had to know what he masers knew if i was going to make any impression. so i went and travelled to museums studied the colors designs what amazed me was the child like designs.... it looked easy....ok....big punch to the jawbones when i tired putting it on canvas...but i struggled along everyone thought i was kinna loopy. But slowly i developed and people liked the works and started to buy them...now i teach art, hold about three exhibitions a year and do charity gigs...i would say by giving the gift that was givin to me the one that helped me most to grow as an artists was giving he gif to someone else....
