Larry W. Green - February 2017

Larry W. Green graduated from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago with a BFA in 1975.  Larry lives and paints in Logan Square. “From landscapes to the human figure, I find beauty in people, places and things that others would find inappropriate; not to reject what others find different. This is what I try to achieve. Sometimes what makes us feel uncomfortable defines who we are. To find who we are sometimes must explore our dark side. Look deep inside and accept what others might reject”
Larry has published a book of his paintings titled "Water Tanks of Chicago (a vanishing urban legacy)" He has had numerous shows throughout Chicago and the US. Best known for his water tank paintings, he also does nature paintings, landscapes, and birds. He is a passionate outdoorsman, fisherman and bicycle rider. He is also a Kidney transplant survivor.
