ARTIST GEORGE HALLMARK’S creative career has spanned nearly five decades, progressing from draftsman to commercial artist to renowned oil painter. His subject matter is primarily architectural, focusing on the types of structures most often found in Mexico or along the California coast. Known for his precise architectural realism, he gives each of his compositions of missions, churches, cantinas, and other structural features an infusion of layers of light and elements of the natural world. His brushstrokes deftly capture the quiet moments of everyday life, offering a glimpse into exquisitely calm settings and beautiful surroundings.
