Meet Greg Bach

Today we’d like to introduce you to Greg Bach.

Greg, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
Creating art has been a part of me at a very young age. My initial exposure to art was cartoons and comic books. I would spend hours a day drawing my favorite characters. And while I excelled at art in school, I didn’t quite have the motivation to pursue a career in the art world. After spending a couple of years at community college, I began working full time and creating art part time. Over the years, I was still making art and showed in a few local juried shows.

By chance, I stumbled upon the VC Art Market. I had never seen anything like it before in my town — amazing artists and artisans selling their work outside in a park. I knew right there I had to be a part of it. I signed up and have been a part of the group for over four years. It’s really like a family — a great group of people that support and promote each other. I am currently showing at the VC Art Market on the second Saturday of every month.

Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
As a gay kid growing up in suburbia, I didn’t quite have a lot of self-confidence. There were times I thought about giving up on making art. Even to this day, I experience self-doubt. Getting rejected by galleries will definitely make you second guess yourself. It’s all a learning experience, though.

Do you look back particularly fondly on any memories from childhood?
One thing that sticks out is going to LACMA on a school field trip. At the time I didn’t like going to museums. There was a German Expressionism exhibit there that I fell in love with. The dark graphic work of Egon Schiele, Käthe Kollwitz and Oskar Kokoschka continue to inspire me.
