Abstract Oil Painting By Freddie Styles

Freddie Styles (b. 1944)

Styles is an Atlanta-based abstract painter, who credits his rural upbringing as influential on his work. He believes a rural lifestyle creates a deep connection—a sensitivity– between the land and the people owing their existence to it. He graduated from Morris Brown College in Atlanta, and served as artist-in-residence at several institutions, including Clark Atlanta University and Spelman College.

He has exhibited at the High Museum (ATL), Telfair Museum of Art (Savannah), City Gallery East (ATL) “African American Abstraction”; American Embassies in Sierra Leone, Trinidad & Tobago and South Africa, and the Georgia Museum of Art (Athens, GA, Traditions Redefined, The Brenda and Larry Thompson Collection), Tubman Museum, (Macon, GA).

In 1997, he was commissioned to create an ad for Absolut Vodka, and in 2001, he was awarded a King Baudouin Foundation Cultural Exchange Program grant to work and study in Belgium.

Styles’ work is included in the following collections: High Museum, Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport (ATL), MOCA/GA (ATL), Spelman College Museum of Art, Clark Atlanta University Collection, Saint Louis Art Museum, Paul Jones Collection (University of Delaware), University of Alabama, Absolut Vodka, Sweden.
