LOS ANGELES, July 29, 2013 /CNW/ - Richard Grieco, known as a cultural icon for his masterful performance
in the hit 80's sensation 21 Jump Street among other acting credits
including If Looks Could Kill, Mobsters and A Night At The Roxbury, is
excited to announce the opening of his one-man art exhibit, Sanctum of
After a break from the industry to hone his craft on canvas, Grieco has
returned as the premier artist who coined the phrase
'abstract-emotionalism'. Remarking about his style and momentous
pieces, Grieco comments, "My work is capturing lightning in a bottle,
it's a pure unbridled emotion. I am a painter who puts his emotions on
canvas and honestly my work is as much part of my life as breathing."
Grieco, along with celebrity friends and art enthusiasts, will showcase
his historic, one-of-a-kind paintings on Thursday August 15th during an
opening night red carpet event at the new French international art
gallery, Gallerie Sparta (8641 Sunset Blvd.) in West Hollywood on the
famed Sunset Plaza.
Gallerie Sparta's owner Stephan Sparta states, "Richard's passion for
painting, focused over a twenty year period of personal exploration has
developed into his own emotional visual language. We have been
following his ascent and are excited to be the exclusive gallery to
premier his explosive paintings in Los Angeles."
A portion of proceeds from sales throughout the exhibit will be donated
to the Wolf Connection Foundation, a rescue sanctuary seeking to
strengthen the instinctual bond between youths and animals.
