In this article I will be bragging about my brother
To those whom have siblings, or do not yet know those whom do; you are likely quite familiar with the two kinds of sibling relations. They are either proud of each other – or – harbor too much pride for themselves. Being the 3rd youngest out of 4 brothers I have seen and felt both. But in this case… I feel Proud :]
Coming from a long line of Artist and growing up with many similarities, us Holly brothers have through the years discovered our own individuality through expression. And to each their own have talents to which I can be proud of everyone. But today I will be talking about my younger brother, George. As far back as I can remember him holding a pencil or a paintbrush George liked to make art. And good he was! All the way back in early grade school he was beyond his class. While his proportions were still maturing his eye for bright contrasted colors brought every piece to life. Fishes, Dinosaurs, Nature, Tractors, People, Portraits, the Titanic, everything that kid dreamed about he would paint or draw. But it was in his teenage years when his art arose to a whole new level of skill as well as aim of impression. Recreating WWII scenes as well as modern warfare were common themes and his work became a reflection of his new desires. So it was that on the day of his 18th birthday he was at the recruiters office to join the infantry for the US Army.
It was during this time when his work really took notice. Drawing nudes – most of which are not posted – for his Army mates, he discovered a new niche for his leisure.
As time pushed closer to the end of his service he continued to push the charcoal producing more and more art.
Experimenting with style his work begun to take on the other side of Nationalism.
Some time after leaving the US Military George joined the French Foreign Legion where his experience influenced a few of his pieces.
More recently he has begun drawing a wider variety of different ethnic groups.
