Taylor Winn is a contemporary abstract artist best known for large-scale mixed media paintings on canvas and panel. His major influences include Abstract Expressionism and “action painting”.
Born in Austin, Texas, Taylor Winn focused on art at an early age. After selling his first painting at age 17, he went on to earn his BA from the University of Texas at Austin. Inspired by the physical approach of Post-War Abstract Expressionist painters such as Jackson Pollock, Taylor’s gestural and large-scale works create abstract environments of color that can span over 15 feet in length.
His interest in Modernism, including both architecture and painting, are reflected in his creative process. Taylor’s paintings harken back to the Post-War era of the 50s and the heyday of Abstract Expressionism but still speak to the future of the genre. Taylor has garnished national attention and has received numerous awards. His paintings can be found in various private collections.
