Brooklyn born, Gregory Siff is an artist with a universal approach that allows him to create a brilliant but palpable body of work. What is this universal approach, you ask? It’s simple: “Have fun.”
It seems like a cliche thing to say, but if you were to see the way Gregory Siff’s eyes light up when he’s creating a piece, you would know that he means it. A playful map of inhibition, Siff’s illustrations are similar to that of Shantell Martin‘s but much less meandering and much more compact and hyper.
Debuting his newest exhibition, Survive Anything at Exchange Alley in the East Village, we headed over to show our support and speak up Siff about his work and latest show.
