Rory Hawkins, Mixed Media Artist, Painter
Street Art/painting/woodcut/ Acrylic and aerosol primarily
I've been surrounded by art my entire life. My father was an arts educator who shared his love of the arts with me throughout my childhood. That encouragement led me to study visual arts at Georgia State University from 2006-2010. I graduated with a B.A. in Studio Art, and continued to stay active in the arts, interning at MINT Gallery for several years and working a brief period at Wentworth Gallery. I began painting and posting cats around the streets of Atlanta around 2010 and haven't stopped since. Through my paintings of cats and the way that I share them with the residents of Atlanta, I hope to encourage exploration and adoration of the amazing city we all call home. I like painting fun and happy images that are accessible to everyone as well as visually appealing. I hope to continue to live and work and build as an artist in this city for many years to come.
