Our featured artist for the month is none other than Charly “Carlos” Palmer. We featured an article on him in our last newsletter and we wanted to post that information here for our blog visitors to view as well.
Charly Palmer currently lives in Atlanta, GA and is an accomplished and successful graphic designer and illustrator. He also owns his own design studio. However, he now dedicates and devotes himself to creating fine art and is developing a strong reputation in the art industry for complex compositions and a unique technique and style.
Charly Palmer was born in Alabama but raised in the state of Wisconsin in Milwaukee. He studied fine art and design in Chicago, Illinois at the School of Art Institute and at the American Academy of Art.
Lately, he has begun painting under the name of “Carlos”. Carlos is his alter ego and allows him the ability to be more spontaneous and gives him the creative freedom to create art that is more experimental in nature. The paintings created under this alter ego are typically more abstract and more primal. Over time, Charly Palmer has found a way to channel both personas and create landmark paintings. His powerful and popular “Civil Rights” series is an example of what happens when both styles are combined.
Many different people and organizations continue to collect the art of Charly “Carlos” Palmer. These organizations include the Miller Brewing Company, the Coca-Cola Company , Vanderbilt University, Mcdonald’s Corporation, and more. Charly Palmer has also been selected to be the recipient of several significant commissions including an official poster for the the 1996 Olympics and the Atlanta Convention Visitors Bureau.
