Gregory Maroun a native of South Africa, is affectionately known as Boffa. He was born in SouthAfrica and as a child has lived all over the world with his family. He eventually settled in the United States where he resides in Redding, Connecticut.
He has always loved art and has used it as an avenue for expressing himself from a young age, albeit as a hobby. Gregory recently decided that it is time to share his Art with the world. He is slowly starting to be noticed and is now Represented by Agora Gallery in Chelsea, NYC as well as Art Platform NYC.
"My passions and emotions drive me. I am an emotional being art is the best and safest way for me to express myself…
I get my inspiration from interesting and beautiful things around me, both visually and emotionally. When a feeling calls out to me I note that idea and may use it later for inspiration. Every image, every shape, every form talks to me. I play with my thoughts in my head in an image, or pattern, and then my pen and paper start that expression."
Gregory also has a clothing line which you can see at http://www.boffaink.myshopify.com
