Who Made the Blog Today? Colin Pringle

Born in Port Huron, Michigan, HAA member and artist Colin Pringle creates images that speak easily for themselves. But the man himself has a few things to say about his work.

"Art is the sum total of accumulated knowledge of man as expressed in any audio, visual, or physical form. I have devoted a lifetime to the pursuit of beauty—not just natural beauty, but those things generally considered not beautiful. Whether I have succeeded, I leave to the judgment of history and mankind. All I know is that I would consider myself to have succeeded if my epitaph were to read 'He saw beauty, kindness, and sensitivity in all things.'"

Colin has pursued his craft at over a half dozen renowned colleges, universities, and art institutes, including Art Center School in Los Angeles, California Institute of Fine Arts in San Fernando, and the University of Heidelburg in Heidelburg, Germany.
He has shown work in countless solo exhibitions and several pieces of his are held in an impressive set of private collections, including those of Kevin Costner, Marilyn Monroe, Liberace, President and Mrs. John F. Kennedy, President and Mrs. Ronald Reagan, and the Imperial Palace in Tokyo.
