Douglas Greengard is a self taught experimental artist who thrives on being different by using a variety of techniques and materials. Some of his distinctive paintings burst from their canvases in unrestrained explosions of vivid colors, this energy radiates from the center creating a microcosm of pattern within the larger composition. Some of his artwork has a life of its own with an outcome that is minimally predictable. Materials Douglas uses includes recycled paper, inkjet printer inks, acrylics, and rare earth glow phosphors. The rare earth glow phosphors glow in the dark which give the viewer a different image at night. Each piece has a RFID microchip that is embedded in the painting (just like a pet’s microchip). This chip has its own unique 18 digit identification number and can be used to authenticate his artwork.Douglas believes in only producing original artwork as his energy and love goes into each creation and thus he leaves a bit himself in each piece. He is currently experimenting with mixed media in three dimensional forms. Douglas uses a symbol for his signature which signifies “Peace Over Earth.” Peace is represented by the letter V, which is an outline of the two fingers used to make the peace sign, Over is represented by a horizontal line, and Earth is represented by a circle. His artist mission is to challenge his own creative energies with unique works of art that bring continual pleasure to the viewing audience.
