Greg Decker


Greg is a symbolist painter, living in southern New Mexico. He holds two Master of Fine Arts degrees, from Cranbrook Academy of Art and from the New York Academy of Art .  He’s studied with celebrated painters such as Leland Bell, Fairfield Porter, John Moore, Vincent Desiderio and Martha Erlebacher.

I never thought I would hear Beethoven and the Ramones mentioned in the same sentence, but that’s what Greg does, he weaves together ideas from history, literature, philosophy and diverse sources to create his work.

Thank you to Julyan Davis for bringing Greg and his luscious paintings to my attention.
