Last night at Gallery 1988 (LA), the man named Craola (Greg Simkins) once again showed there there were no limits to his imagination with another fantastic body of work that created fanciful environments for his beloved characters to play in. Aptly entitled “Storyteller”, the show reminded everyone that Greg is one of the most gifted artists out there in projecting his vision with a narrative full of detail, improvisation, and embellishment.

The new collection of works, which we got a glimpse of in our studio visit, was centered around two large-scale paintings, some medium sized works, and some wonderfully detailed drawings. Greg was also busy all night sketching and signing his “Drawn from the Well” book for his faithful fans who waited in a line that went out the door to meet their favorite artist.
