For artist Gregory (Greg) Dorosh, the creation of art is a joyous, relaxing time. His work reflects the admiration of the places he has seen. Greg considers himself to be an Impressionist artist.
He was born in 1950, Jersey City, New Jersey. As a child, he lived in Garfield, NJ. When Greg moved to Milton, New Jersey at age 11, his passion for art took hold. He and his family would sit around the kitchen table about 2 weeks before Easter coloring Psankas – Ukrainian Easter eggs.
“My father was a draftsman, which inspired me to design houses with floor plans.” Architecture was his first passion before fine arts.
Greg’s art training was a self-directed study, attending workshops, “My favorite workshop was with Daniel Greene, who I admire and had an impact on me.” When Greg moved to Decherd, TN, he continued with his art and established his own studio. Greg would look through all the landscape pictures he took while in Canada and Europe for inspiration for his landscape paintings. Some of his landscapes are from his imagination. “I have a very vivid imagination. I can sometimes see the head of figures out of the marble patterns in floor tiles.”
Greg developed his technique by looking at Renaissance and impressionist artists’ art. He is influenced by Goya, Renoir, Michelangelo, Monet. His style has developed from the combination of these three artists. Greg belongs to SeeMe and Society6. He has participated in SeeMe Art Takes Time Square in New York City, NY three times, SeeMe OneSelf group show at the World Trade Center in NYC, two Scope art shows in Miami, Florida, OneSelf show in NYC. One of Greg’s miniature paintings was published in a book from a Miami, FL Scope exhibition. Also, two of his landscape paintings are published in another art book.
Greg has been a featured Impressionist artist a few times in Fine Arts America impressionism magazine. The people who have seen his art have admired them. They were impressed by the composition and color scheme of his landscape paintings. When Greg is not creating, he likes to watch Star Trek and Doctor Who. He also likes sci-fi shows and is interested in astronomy. Greg’s mission is to have his art-recognized and shown in galleries, especially in New York City.
