Gabe’s imaginative and boldly colorful style has made him a favorite among athletes looking for unique and unforgettable portraits and murals.
As a child growing up in Missouri, he spent hour after hour filling notebooks with cartoons and sketches of the people around him. He also loved to create detailed portraits of his favorite athletes including the local Kansas City sports’ stars. His surreal yet realistic style had already taken shape by the time he attended college and received his first formal training in painting. In his youth, Gabe was also a passionate athlete, eventually playing football at the collegiate level, which provides him with an insider’s knowledge that greatly informs his work to this day.
Since his first painting for DeAngelo Hall in 2006, Gabe has continued to make a name for himself as a painter for the pros. He works closely with each athlete, turning their ideas and requests into one-of-a-kind portraits that capture their personality, as well as athletic prowess.
Gabe has been creating detailed portraits for many celebrated sports professionals, celebrities, and corporations involved in the sports industry for over 15 years.
