Gregory Euclide's Album Art for Bon Iver

For the past year, I have been thinking, creating and pitching an inspirational speaker series for employees at the Life Time corporate offices. And I’m proud to say that it finally came to life tonight in a great way.

3e — The Life Time Agency, and its Shift speaker series, were proud to have visual artist and high school art teacher Gregory Euclide as its first presenter. And he couldn’t have made a better first impression.

Shifting from his early understandings of and approaches to art, Gregory continues to inspire and challenge himself while discovering new techniques along the way — making a conscience effort to depict the relationship between art, man and nature in his imaginative pieces.

Incorporating items like found plastic bags, melted Wisconsin snow, used crates, cut paper, and even the land on which his work often resides, Gregory’s eye for detail and love of nature comes through in profoundly beautifully ways.

Never resting on his known strengths, his curiosity has helped him build a career of impressive pieces that have been shown in art galleries across the nation, on covers for Bon Iver’s Grammy-winning album, and even on whiteboards within the high school art class in which he teaches.

Watch how Gregory Euclide’s makes a simple whiteboard come alive with nothing more than a little water and sumi ink:
