Abstract expressionist Craig Boretz uses color, form, and movement to describe emotions with passionate creativity in the spirit of de Kooning, Pollack, Kline, and Kandinsky. His perspective is simple, contrast and contradiction equal harmony. He sees things for their beauty and keeps the elements straightforward and direct with color and texture as the central themes. His work exudes random and spontaneous movements that flow dynamically.
A life-long collector of art, Craig launched his artistic skills from his base understanding and the intuitive nature of the paintings he’s collected over decades. Craig has family roots in New York City and was born on the East Coast however he was raised in the warm coastal areas of Southern California. Craig was an accomplished young actor, surfer, and athlete.

I strive to create with color, form, and movement. There are no boundaries.
My work has been seen as extraordinarily powerful in such environments as an executive office or contemporary residence.
