Artist Information
Artist Biography

New York City, letters, graffiti and text all serve as sources of inspiration for Greg Lamarche. His collages incorporate found materials and a variety of commercially printed papers. The work plays with a profusion of font styles, word fragments and multiple layers and employs characteristics from graffiti such as repetition, bold colors, multiple perspectives and movement.

Born and raised in New York, Greg Lamarche has been making collages since the sixth grade when he used fire works wrappers gathered from the schoolyard as material. He began writing graffiti in 1981 and published Skills magazine during the early 90s. He has worked both as a designer and artist since 2000.

His work has been featured in numerous magazines including, New York Times Magazine, Print Magazine, Juxtapoz Modern Painters and Arkitip, among others. His artwork has also been published in several new books including, Graffiti New York, Ornamental Type and Piecebook Reloaded for which he created the cover graphics.

His work has been featured in the States as well and in Europe, with solo and group shows in NYC, Boston, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Toronto, Copenhagen and Stockholm.
