Lamar Briggs
 
American contemporary artist, Lamar Briggs is an established painter, who creates monotypes and large-scale abstract acrylic paintings. His art education includes: Independent Study, Antibes, France, 1966; Colorado Institute of Art, 1960; Art Center of Los Angeles, 1959; University of Houston, 1958; University of Southwestern Louisiana, 1953.
Early in his career, he began his signature abstract paintings that are inspired by nature, music, and a positive attitude towards life.
His approach is scholarly, and he carefully researches the symbolism in his paintings. He has sophisticated knowledge of printmaking that allows him to incorporate chine colle, collage, woodcutting and etching in his mixed media monotypes on precious papers. His goal is to achieve works that appear spontaneous and rhythmic.
Briggs has been referenced in “Who`s Who in American Art” since 1962.
