Mixed Media Artist and Fine Art Photographer Larry Bacon
I was born in Washington DC. and now reside in Maryland
I attended Duke Ellington High School of The Arts in Washington DC
for visual arts and graduated after four years of intense study in 1978. After Duke Ellington
I attended the University of DC (UDC) for Advertising and Design for
about 3 years. I have also taken many other art courses one being pottery
and painting at Corcoran Art Gallery in Washington DC. I have been in many
art shows one of my most recent art shows at The Huntington Community Center Art Gallery in Bowie Maryland which was Solo Art Show Title: Something New Over The Sun .
Most of my inspiration comes from nature, dreams and my life. I think of myself as a spiritual person.
I give all credit to God for giving me the creative talent that I have and
All that have yet to be known to me at this time. my main goal is to use my
God given talent in a way that will empower myself and others that have the will
to make the world a better and peaceful place to live for all.
One thing that you will never see in any of my art and photography is
any depiction of Black people being slaves, drinking at bars, half naked women, sports, crimes etc. I'm of the future not past.
