Southern California painter Warren Long’s individual style defies pigeonholing. American Outsider art, folk art, Latin Renaissance and Impressionism are all obvious influences. In a singular effort Longs paintings incorporate historical context with personal fantasy and a beach-life ethic unique to Southern California. He expresses a startlingly wide breath of influences not only through subject matter and materials, but also with his distinct use of bold sunlit color. His funky use of assemblage is rightly inspired from the earth and is an organic process. A humorous anarchist his paintings reflect the poignancy of our own lives and continue to captivate viewers and collectors worldwide.
