Queens, NY based Greg Burak (previously featured here) makes figurative paintings. He was born in the Hudson Valley Region of New York in 1986. He received his Associates Degree from the Delaware College of Art and Design in 2005, his BFA from the Maryland Institute College of Art in 2007, and an MFA in Painting from Indiana University in 2015.
Burak’s strange and unnerving paintings often “set” in the late 1970s or early 1980s (by his use of clothing and interior style), immediately recall coming-of-age movies of that era.
