Gregory Kondos

    Gregory Kondos is one of the West’s foremost landscape artists. For over 40 years he has traveled the world painting landscapes as inspiring as Yosemite Valley, the French countryside and the islands of Greece. His signature works of the Sacramento Delta have become modern classics that boldly capture its sweeping beauty.

    Greg’s early work was influenced by abstract expressionists such as William de Kooning and his work in this style won prizes at the Winter Invitationals at the California Palace of the Legion of Honor in San Francisco. Later, he met Wayne Thiebaud who became a close friend and inspired the “painterly realism” that continues to distinguish Greg’s body of work.

    Highly collected and widely shown, his style continues to evolve as new landscapes are captured in his palette of simple yet vibrant colors. His lifelong achievements place him in the great tradition of American landscape painters that includes Albert Bierstadt, Edward Hopper and Georgia O’Keefe. His paintings take light from the Impressionists, form and structure from Cezanne, and energy and painterly power from the abstract expressionists. Wayne Thiebaud once described Greg’s paintings as “eloquently caressed landscapes of sweeping distances that transport us …”
