CRAIG FORD | 6 Images

Born and raised in Atlanta since the sixties, Craig Ford studied art at Young Harris College in Young Harris GA before transferring to the University of Georgia in Athens, where he majored in graphic design and illustration. He later worked as a designer/illustrator and art director for several agencies before starting his own digital art studio business, “Design by Ford,” in 1999. It wasn’t until 2005 that Ford returned to painting. Additionally, he teaches art classes at the Roswell Visual Arts Center and is an adjunct art professor at Young Harris College.

He sees himself as a visual storyteller, taking ordinary objects and putting them into different contexts and discovering completely different meanings and ideas in their combinations. Nostalgic icons or everyday items find a place in his compositions; big vividly colored pieces. Ford’s work has been regularly exhibited at the Atlanta Artist Center, the Marietta/Cobb Museum of Art and was selected as one of Atlanta’s emerging artists by Anne Irwin Fine Art. Currently he is represented by The CSparkman Group in Atlanta and the North Park Art Gallery in Marietta.
