Spencer Schultz is a New Orleans-based, self-taught artist. He began painting in 2012 when his now-wife, Georgia, suggested they paint while waiting for their power to be restored following Hurricane Isaac. Spencer’s expressionist-style paintings are characterized by bright, saturated colors, abstract shapes, and energetic brush strokes. His work focuses mainly on the varied landscapes of Louisiana, including many locations in Baskin, Louisiana. His work has been shown at a number of exhibitions and galleries throughout New Orleans.
