Gregory Hein is an American painter. Born in Baltimore, he currently lives and works in the Washington D.C. Metro area. Hein earned his Bachelor’s Degree in Design from the University of Maryland. His artwork has been exhibited nationally and locally at venues including Strathmore Hall, Pyramid Atlantic, Torpedo Factory, Maryland Art Place and Artscape.
Hein is known for creating vividly colored, highly textured pieces constructed from collections of words and phrases searching out the sublime, the mundane and the merely illegible. Currently he is working on pieces that play with word and color intersections. You may run into him around Jackson Pollock’s Lavender Mist at the National Gallery of Art.
