Let's meet artist Gordy Beil -
"I SAAYYY It's Art!, by Gordy Beil

"I've always thought that words about art stand on their heads. Oh well. here goes:

As a child, I was constantly drawing and painting. One year my grandmother gave me a whole roll of white butcher paper! There was more play value in that than many other more expensive toys.

My early artisic influences were people like Albrect Durer, Michelangelo and Leonardo DaVinci. The Dada artist like Jean Arp, Marcel DuChamp and Sophie Taeuber (Arp) were also sources of inspiration. The surrealist, especially Salvador Dali, have had a great impact on my art. Still later influences were: Alexander Calder, M.C. Escher and Maxfield Parrish.

I am, by nature, an experimentalist. Everything is an experiment. I learn by doing. If I see a technique that interest me, I have to try it. I work in a broad variety of media: monoprint, block printing, intaglio engraving, painting in acrylic, found object constructions, black and white photography and manipulated Polaroid photography.
