"I have not had the opportunity to work with George but I find his paintings to be politically, culturally, and psychologically interesting, moving and beautiful. I will most definitely attend his next exhibition."

"I met George through an exhibition we were in together. I was very impressed with his artwork then as I equally am now! From what I've seen, his work has a strong sense of visual narratives as you must read it and see it to appreciate it. Best of luck, George!"

"I've seen George's work at different shows around San Francisco. His website's great, and so is the art posted here, but honestly, it doesn't do his work justice. He layers canvases on top of one another to create this "topography" as i think he calls it. When you look at his works in person, you see architectural blue prints underneath photo-realistic figures, all intersecting with amorphous shapes and's intense...some of the most creative and evocative work I've seen in a while. I'm glad to see he's featured here too."

"I had the great joy of living with George his first year when we both went to NYU and was continually impressed by his development as an artist. I knew back then that he had a great gift. Seeing his body of work always expanding both in complexity and style is inspiring. George's art actually uplifts one, along with bringing a sense of wonder. This combination makes his art truly captivating and unique."
