After graduating from the Art Institute of Houston with a degree in commercial art, Quincy Verdun went to work in the field of Fine Art, creating mixed-media posters and open edition Fine Art prints. The South Louisiana artist has had his works shown at the Los Angeles and New York Expos, and well as being published and widely distributed by Verkerke in the Netherlands. Later, he began to focus his efforts on sculpture for which he always had a strong interest. He was especially drawn to the classical works of the old masters, though he is also much inspired by the Neo-Classical and the Gothic period.
Quincy currently works from his studio in Larose, Louisiana, where he produces his figurative oil paintings but also 3D monoprints on wood panels. He sells most of these in New Orleans, on Jackson Square.
Quincy is strongly influenced by such artists as Michelangelo, da Vinci and Rodin. With an awe and admiration of these old masters, he began creating works in cast paper using a unique combination of drawings and sketches with a low relief. These works are reminiscent of sketches by Michelangelo and da Vinci. Some of Quincy's latest works have his hallmarks of rich surface and texture, with classical and modern themes, in a contemporary setting.
Quincy also produces a significant number of fine oil paintings of which we offer premium giclee canvas prints. Be sure to check out his most recent series in the gallery; "Portraits and Figures: Portals to the Soul" hosts an astounding array of exquisite works not to be missed.
If you happen to be in the New Orleans area and would like to see these paintings firsthand or you would like to meet the artist, you can visit Jackson Square on most Saturdays and probably find Quincy there exhibiting and selling some of his latest work.
