About the artist

Glen Moriwaki is a Bay Area artist living in Walnut Creek, California. His work has been exhibited in San Francisco, Hawaii, and France.  Glen paints large abstract or semi-abstract acrylic works on paper and canvas, often employing mixed media, collage, and found-objects. His current work includes a series of very large multi-panel paintings, some of which are permanently installed in public spaces.  Each painting is comprised of images painted on many discrete canvases, which are then assembled into unpreconcieved compositions. 

Recent solo exhibitions include Galerie L’Espace 13 in Mur-de-Barrez, France, 2016 and Galerie-In-Situ, Labelle Friche in Nogent-le-Rotrou, France, 2015.   Glen’s Painting in the South of France Workshop celebrated its 20th anniversary in 2018. He is offering the fourth session of his Kauai Westside Painting Workshop in January, 2019. Glen received his BA, MA, and MFA from UC Berkeley, studying with Joan Brown, Elmer Bischoff, and David Simpson. He retired from full-time teaching (painting and contemporary art history) at City College of San Francisco in 2014.
