Biography:

Scott Andrew Spencer (American painter, born 1970) 
 
Living in Los Angeles, California, Spencer loves to listen to music and paint daily. He takes inspiration from his immediate surroundings, real or imagined, and paints into the wee hours of the night. Scott began painting full time after a brush with cancer in 1999. He is represented by renowned gallerist and art dealer Biljana Grcic-Beran through Galeria Jan in La Jolla, California, and was admitted into the Pasadena Society of Artists in 2004.

Interview

How did you start in Art?

I've always loved the idea of art, museums and handmade things.

Who is/was your master?

Max Beckmann is my favorite painter so far.

Do you think that training is Important or prefer self-taught?

I prefer self-taught. Too much "training" and a person's unique quality can sucked out of them.

It is possible to live from Art?

Yes. Thank God people buy my art. I don't know what I'd do otherwise.

Transpiration or inspiration?

A little of both. Hard work works sometimes. And sometimes and artwork will just "happen."

Your 3 Favorite Artists Living and Dead

Living: Lucien Freud, Cecily Brown, Dana Schutz. 
Deceased: Max Beckmann, Willem de Kooning, Milton Avery.

Work of art that you would like to be the Author and Why

Sistine Chapel, because it's too fantastic for words.

Is there a Price for Art?

Yes, it's what the artist wants/needs or can get for the piece.

Everything can be art or are there limits?

Everything IS art.

Digital Art. Yes or no?

I guess.
