Alfred Phillips is a Gainesville, Florida-based artist who specializes in acrylic painting.
Educated at Louisville, Kentucky’s Art Center School, with a full scholarship four-year studio degree, Phillips had a long, successful career in commercial art that included stints at ad agencies, then at his own graphics design firm. In 2003 he closed the firm and took up acrylic painting full time when he relocated to Fort Lauderdale, earning multiple awards, and making sales on national and international levels. In 2013 he moved to Gainesville, FL, and became active in the arts community. Phillips helped establish the Gainesville Fine Arts Association gallery and served on the Board for over five years. He also served as volunteer Gallery Director and steered its direction for several years until a paid employee could be afforded by the association. His work can be viewed on his website:
“I generally paint realistically but never to the point of photorealism. I call my work ‘contemporary realism’ to allow for the freedom to include abstracted areas or mixed media, or even palette knife work.”
