Greg Pitts: Art through Spontaneous Combustion

Greg Pitts is a self-taught artist that creates pieces that cannot be described or bound by a single style or genre.  He enjoys working in all mediums. When he creates, his process is spontaneous and never methodical.  For him, art is a license to experiment… to push boundaries and discover what lies below the surface of his own psyche. Interesting right?
