Scott Blackwell: The Artist

Scott Blackwell

A contemporary Humorist, with a Cajun and Caribbean twist, who takes his art seriously, but with a dose of humor and color. Scott takes his work to another level of depth using vibrant colors and textures to produce his wacky world of original and limited edition pieces.

Scott’s mediums consist of acrylic paint, Gypsum Cement, found objects, and new building products at the hardware store. His original paintings are on canvas with a technique he has designed to create a look as though it were tile.

“When I ate my first crayon as a kid, I knew I wanted to be an artist.” He grew up on Anna Maria Island, Florida, attended Ringling School of Art, and achieved a BFA from the university of Southern Louisiana in Lafayette, Louisiana.

Scott’s works are currently sold in galleries in Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama and Florida. They have also been sold to private collectors in 24 different countries. He has been included in many group shows around the country, including the Contemporary Arts Center in New Orleans (1993), the New Orleans Museum of Art (1991), and in 1993, he was featured on the show Real New Orleans on Channel 26 TV. Scott has also created a new series of paintings from the Rip A Lip Fish Wear Line.
