Casey Baugh 1984 | Georgia

Born in 1984 in Lookout Mountain, Georgia, Baugh’s earliest art instruction came around the age of four from his father and aunt who were artists by hobby. By the age of 13, Baugh was producing and selling work professionally. At age 14, he won his first regional competition and at age 17, he had won his first national competition. In the spring of 2004, he conducted his first workshop at the Village Arts of Putney in Vermont. In November of 2008 Baugh's painting titled "Erubescent" was featured on the cover of American Art Collector Magazine along with a powerful 4-page artist profile in the issue. Since then Baugh has made two television appearances and won numerous awards including the cover competition for American Artists Drawing Magazine. At only 26 years of age, Casey Baugh has established himself as a major name in the ever growing "Bridge Art" movement of artists. This innovative group of painters challenge the boundaries of representational art with their unique fusion of traditional painting techniques and contemporary approach and perspectives. His works have been exhibited in galleries world wide in both solo and group shows with Wendt Gallery.
