About Dirk Guidry

Dirk Guidry is an abstract painter, born 1987 and raised in the bayou town of Galliano, Louisiana. His work primarily consists of large scale paintings wherein paint swirls across canvas, building and dragging pigment to create forms. A delicate dance- intuitive yet controlled, acting and reacting to create something that relates on a subconscious level.

Dirk's paintings and other works have been featured in galleries and exhibitions across the state, and are a part of many private collections.

Through the Louisiana State Arts Council and Bare Walls Lafayette Initiative, Dirk strives to expand the roles of creative arts within our communities and how it may better them.
