Fine Art Résumé

Owen York, Artist

Statement

“I’m an ‘educated’ artist. I grew up with The Arts, got degreed in The Arts, and then educated by real-life experiences in multiple industries in The Arts — fine art, film, TV, music.
I take my art and career seriously, but I’m not that serious. Things are serious enough without me adding to it. So, I don’t. Chill out and enjoy.”
