Resident Artist – June

About Everett Spruill:

An American painter, photographer and print-maker, Everett Spruill is an innovator. Born in 1954 in Birmingham, Alabama. Everett Spruill attended Berea College, where he majored in Business. It was during this time that he painted loose, gestural water color of landscapes and portraits in the tradition of the French Impressionists, but did not seriously entertain the idea of a career in the arts.

Inspired by the great Romare Bearden, Spruill’s “Old School Jazz and Blues” series of paintings and collages of recycled and re-purposed materials focus on Jazz as a central theme. Spruill constantly challenges himself to source new materials and expand his resources.

His first radical shift came in 1999, with the “Tribal Rhythms Series” in which he employs interlocking geometric shapes combined with graffiti techniques. It was around this time as well that he created his first abstract prints in screen printing, linoleum cuts and offset lithography. During the following decade, Spruill introduced texture into his art, which he came to call “nuvo-stained glass” painting for its transparent qualities. From the mid-1990’s to 2010, Spruill created a large body of work that responded in a general way to the childlike simplicity of creating art. During this time, the increasingly abstract collages of Spruill’s paintings gave way to a multitude of materials from electronic components, textiles, recycled wall paper and decorative architectural elements. To create these works, the artist used appropriated materials and digital technologies.


In 2017, Spruill began making wire sculptures for public spaces and developing architectural projects. Still residing in Orlando, Florida with his many accolades, Everett Spruill prints and paintings are most famous for his work in the areas of collage and cubist abstraction.

Artist Statement: 

“Grounded in contemporary expressionism, I use rough brush strokes, bright colors, and a specific image in each painting to express my artistic statement. My Influence is usually gathered from context that I’m reading or a part of history that I’m interested in at the moment the work is being created. Every word, color, and image I use is to narrate the painting. Nothing should be left to mystery; if you have any questions about my art you can find it in the painting.”
