From my studio in Chicago I create oil paintings with strong charcoal and pencil accents to emphasize the quality of the line. I customize for clients all over the world. I love to work on paintings for specific environments including homes and public spaces. I work with clients and designers on specific projects as well as selling completed works individually to collectors.

The medium of the paintings are oil paint, charcoal and graphite. Each piece, whether figurative or abstract, tells a story over time. In my mind, the layers of materials and returning in the creation process end up showing through the work as a story. There is an essential solitary quality to painting and drawing, these works attempt to capture that quality and the tonality is often muted to capture the natural and solitary quality of the process of making art.

I love to work with clients whose sense of design and environment matches the quality of my works.

  • The singular expression of Gabriel's artistic ideas can be found in the line that goes through his work. The line is not a boundary but a direction; it moves, and, followinig its movement, the eye realizes a whole, like a dream come alive. The rest-the color, the shapes and shadowy images-seem, like adjectives, always to enhance the line; but it is the line itself that carries the essential message.

  • I really appreciate your work. The apathetic angelic simplistic temporary fragmented angel character is beautiful. I hope you have an interesting life (that's what a random lady on a pier told me last week) Thank you,

  • Just wanted to say, your artwork is really beautiful. I wish I express that less plainly, but it all sounds too much. So, I'll leave it at that, beautiful (but imagein it underlined, italicized and in bold so you know it's said in a really intense meaningful way!)

  • Yeah they look way sad. I like your "angel" as well. Your drawings show your personality so well. I write in Georgian :( it's quite late here...but it's my birthday today.

  • Hey! You're so talented and I love your art style.

  • Not gonne lie, I scrolled through about 80% of your blog the first time I went on it. Your work is incredible and is of a style that inspires me. I've always had a pencil in my hand purely due to its accessibility but paint is something I'd love to work with but I've never known where to start.
