Gurney Passant

Gurney C. Passant currently works and lives in Tampa, Florida hailing from Chicago, Illinois. His art interest began at a very young age with cold – long rides in his Mom’s VW Bug or AMC Gremlin to his art classes located in the suburb of Barrington, Illinois.

Gurney’s passion for painting was rekindled after multiple trips to India, admiring the work by artists living in a Chennai, India artist village called Cholamandal http://www.cholamandalartistsvillage.org/. The explosion of colors reflected in the villages, clothing, and Indian holidays inspires a considerable amount of his work today.
