“I saw myself as a painter early on,” Jimmy Abegg says, “as a child in elementary school.” Now Jimmy’s decades-long career has become an instinct of hand. His work has appeared on numerous album covers, books, magazines, and walls of collectors worldwide. As one collector put it, “If you own a Jimmy Abegg painting, it holds the room.” Magnificent characters, landscapes, and abstracts are Jimmy’s subject of choice, with a preference toward multiple layers of paint. Among these layers a luminescence develops where a single blue becomes a myriad of itself on the canvas.
“While a degenerative eye disease has changed Jimmy’s eye sight, it hasn’t changed his vision. Having adapted, he continues to create beautiful art he says “reflects the calm and peace I have been blessed with."
