Greg Goossens is a Canadian artist, born and raised on the westcoast.
Saturday morning cartoons and skateboarding were his roots as a kid so after attending Emily Carr College of Art and Design he ventured into animation and then commercial design for skateboard companies. Surrounded by industries built on art was very influential.
His artwork has spanned from couture clothing, children's books, to magazine publications, and even public live art shows.
Lately, Greg enjoys creating contemporary art.
"Contemporary represents so much diversity!"
He enjoys several different mediums and it's always exciting to see what he creates next. From painting huge building murals to tattooing a cheeseburger on himself he loves to art!
Father of twins he created Dad Beet Studios to film arts and crafts driven videos with his sons. (@dadbeet) The teens aren't as enthusiastic as him but Greg's energy for art shines thru. His social videos are art, daft, craft, and laughs.
