Artist Interview: Monty Montgomery on Authenticity
Sparks Gallery interviews Monty Montgomery, a lifelong painter, and muralist, on his advice for aspiring artists. Visit the gallery in person to see his completed mural on our back deck.
Monty Montgomery’s artistic vision can best be described as an emotional language created using his innate intuition about color and object relationships to connect with the viewer.
“Staying authentic, if something speaks to you, from color to sound – recognize it, know that it spoke to you for a reason.”
Montgomery attempts through color, symmetry and geometric abstraction to share his emotional journey and create a new urban contemporary style.
“If you feel authentic about why something affected you, stay authentic to that because I really believe that is something we should use to create from on all platforms.”
