Gray Artus

Asheville, NC


I lost myself so long ago… I chased plastic dreams I thought would bring happiness. Where did the time go? I lost myself in this world and at times I lose my mind… When I paint I find it and my thoughts are so clear.
I paint to have freedom… Freedom from this world of falling short of others expectations… Freedom from the anxiety that oppressed me and formed me into a soul that was unrecognizable.
I am a photographer to see… see the beauty in this world. There are days it’s hard to find but I see it… it’s there in a sunrise or maybe in a smile.
I am a photographer to see… see the loneliness in the world. It’s never hard to find… A teardrop falls silently to the earth.
I am an artist because there are no words to express how I feel.
I am an artist created to be free…my soul soars… it’s the way God created me.

I am Gray Artus a painter, photographer and fine artist from Asheville, North Carolina. This is just my self diagnosis but I must have ADD. I jump from photography to painting then to a different painting and back again. Its an endless circle of creativity here!

Art is what I think about when I get up in the morning and when I go to bed at night and all day in between... its my passion!

I am a self taught artist and regretfully I have no formal training as an artist or photographer... minus one year of art in high school and one over complicated photography course years ago that confused me more than helped me.

My art is currently displayed nationally and internationaly in private collections and has been used as album art and on various regional websites.

Thank you for viewing my art!
