George Crump is a Chicago-based native and visual artist. He attended the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, and most recently held a solo exhibition at Faie African Art Gallery.
George developed his focus on the sensual nature of art, aiming to evoke universality and honesty within his practice. So much so, his strong emotional connection to his paintings are open to a variety of rich interpretations that span a wide range of emotions and forms.
In his 2022 exhibition The Underworld, previously here at SSCAC, themes of remembrance and the spirit of determination traversed the scope of Crump’s exhibition as he’s concerned with aspects of universal notions of existentialism, affliction, redemption, and triumph.
