Artist Biography

George Strasburger


George Strasburger was born and raised in a working class
neighborhood in Scranton, PA. His first artistic influences were the
murals in the Catholic Church he attended as a child, admiring and
studying the stories and anatomy.
Strasburger has a classical approach. His large-scale oil paintings begin
with drawings, which make visual for him the finished work in his
mind’s eye. His thoughtful compositions, and a combination of loose
and tight brushwork serve the scenarios he creates. Strasburger’s
paintings are his “take” on the human condition, focusing on the
common and the good. HIs characters often perform tasks or engage in
activities that to him depict an act or a need that is elemental. He values
beauty and he reveals existential truth.
He currently lives and paints full time in Tucson Arizona.
