George De Chiara’s paintings are best described as representational with a push towards impressionist color. Whether it’s in his studio working on a still life or painting en plein air, George prefers to work directly from life when possible. One can see his dedication to composition and color in this body of work, which is collected across the United States and abroad.
George attended The America Academy of Art in Chicago, and graduated with a degree in fine arts. While at the academy, George Studied under Irving Shapiro, Ted Smuskiewicz and the legendary Bill L. Parks. Immersed in color, form and design, George developed many of the techniques he still uses today. The Academy stressed the importance of studying from life and working daily. George continues to embrace these ethics as he refines and sharpens his vision.
After spending time living in Chicago, Colorado and Utah, George finally settled in North Texas with his wife and two daughters. George finds inspiration in their frequent travels to the Gulf Coast, Hill Country, and Brush Country of South Texas. You can view more of his work at his website http://georgedechiara.com
