Judson Vereen is a multidisciplinary artist and author born in 1986 in Atlanta, Georgia. His work in painting includes, but is not limited to, large scale abstractions, collage works, and assemblage. Drawing from the New York School and the abstract expressionists, Vereen creates brooding, emotional works that function as the artist's living diary.
Additionally, he is the author of two books of poetry, Like a Bird Knows To Sing and 62 poems from Judson Vereen, and American Pleasure, a novel published in 2016. Vereen is currently working on several book projects, including Letters from a Jeep Cherokee, a collection of letters and poems, and On Painting, a book of essays dedicated to the art of painting.
The artist also released a full album of recorded songs on which he sings and play guitar, and acted in Vacation, a 2014's short film that won critical acclaim and was featured in several film festivals, including the New Filmmakers Festival in Los Angeles.
Judson Vereen has lived in Atlanta, New York City, San Francisco, Los Angeles and currently lives with his wife Yasmin Vereen in Brazil. Vereen is part of an increasingly rare group of artists who are autodidacts - he had never attended art school and has no academic training. This website serves as a compendium of all his creative efforts.
