About Gregory Siff

View Profile »

Gregory Siff (American, b. 1977) is an American artist and actor known for his works that expertly blend Pop Art and Abstract expressionism. Culling imagery from popular culture, Siff infuses these icons with a particular level of emotional and temporal gesture, as denoted by the drips and drabs of his paint, a quality that is not often associated with painting of this genre. Amongst his accolades, the artist has collaborated with various brands, most notably the sneaker company Vans, where he acted as their “Art Ambassador.” He has also collaborated with the musician Patti Smith and has created commissions for the, now closed, Deitch Projects in New York City.
