Jimmy Reagan

October 18, 2019 - December 31, 2019

Born on July 6th, 1993 in St. Paul, Minnesota and created art since 2009, Reagan is significantly influenced by Van Gogh, Picasso, Mid-Century artist and Expressionism. Reagan has a passion for color, texture and the simplicity of an image. His work is expressive and inventive while innocent and sophisticated at the same time. The sumptuous, unexpected array of color in his work suggests the  artist’s relationship to synesthesia. Bright,  electric color infuses his work as so the short lines he defines as "tick marks". Reagan's favorite subjects are of both people and animals which often depicts a clear, sometimes striking direct gaze.

 

Diagnosed with complex autism at age 2 1/2, Reagan's work offers him a means to illustrate his perspective of the world. Reagan is a true outsider artist as he has no formal training however, art is in his blood as he is the great nephew of acclaimed New York artist George Shneeman.
