A self taught artist, Craig Downs has spent the past ten years creating a bold and unique style to call his own.
His whimsical creations play with color and rhythm in such a way that they seem to dance upon the canvas. The allegorical style he has created is not to be taken in at a glance; rather it is most fully enjoyed when taken in at a serene pace, for what first may appear as simplicity belies a hidden depth.
This said, it is the artist's hope that the observer will not take his work too seriously and will allow themselves to enjoy the magical simplicity of the paintings.
Most recently Craig Downs has placed in the top three out of approximately 70 local and national artists at both the 2010 & 2011 Taste of St. Louis.
