ARTIST CLOSEUP - Spanky Anderson


Gallery at Marina Square Presents a “Close Up” of Artist

Paul "Spanky" Anderson



"A life well lived is like a very long art project, one of appreciation, variety, compassion and abundance.  I think we all feel at times like we are missing out on the "artistic life" but all it takes is an extraordinary moment to reestablish the vision and the dream.  For me a spectacular sunset is that gateway.  I believe we are defined by special moments in our life.  Hopefully my paintings can capture these moments and extend their power. "   




Spanky grew up in Georgia and learned to draw and paint at an early age. He later traveled the south and exhibited his artwork of the southern landscape. He graduated from the University of West Georgia with a BA in Art, where he was awarded two Permanent Collection awards from Peter Augustini, a world renowned sculptor from New York, and internationally known painter Donald Cooper. Upon graduation, Spanky began his career as a graphic designer and colorist with a major carpet and textile manufacturer.
Most recently Spanky has moved to the Morro Bay area where he says “My peripheral vision of the central coast virtually dictates the color palette and brushstrokes onto my canvas.”






In the mid-seventies Spanky accepted a designer colorist position in Southern California where he continued to paint and pursue his love of the local land and seascape.
