Some people defy labels.  Gregory Siff is one of those people.  His life resume shows successes in the following disciplines: singing, musicianship (playing guitar and alto-saxophone), acting, directing, painting (both as a fine artist and street artist), modeling and serving as emcee on a TV show.  His art has been featured in gallery exhibitions as well as on the streets across the United States which is how I came to discover this incredibly talented Renaissance man.  In addition to all these amazing accomplishments, Siff wrote a movie based on the life of Vincent Van Gogh entitled “painT.”  Find out more about the project and get to know Gregory Siff a little better.  I think you’ll find that his energy and enthusiasm for life are the keys to his success.

According2G: How did you get started in street art?

Gregory Siff: Two years ago I took three tubes of paint, (blue, red and yellow) and smeared them all over a big white billboard in the subway on my morning commute to work at 6am.  Ever since then I couldn’t wait to get up for work in the morning.  That was the first time.  It became my movie poster for the film that I wrote, painT. [link will open in new window]. It’s a modernization of the life of the artist Vincent van Gogh.
