what if Vincent van Gogh was born today? painT tells the story of Vinny, a struggling artist and quintessential "art underdog" who sees the world as a living, breathing painting. Set against the backdrop of the New York & L.A. art scene, painT is an American update on the tragic life of van Gogh, seen through the eyes of his modern day counterpart and spiritual heir, examining the fine line between love, madness, and paint.

Gregory Siff paints live with his heart at URBAN OUTFITTERS SPACE 15 TWENTY for PAPER GARDEN RECORDS

On Sunday July 11th I painted for 3 hours straight live on stage while three bands from
PAPER GARDEN RECORDS played their songs into the air. MONSTER, PEASANT, and MIGHTY TIGER brought their words and sounds to me and I painted this piece which Zack Kelly from Mighty Tiger entitled, SHEKHINAH. I was surrounded by love, friends, magic, sun and life. Today is a different day as I am alone on a couch in a house so quiet you can hear the electricity tap, so down that everything seems impossible, but when i look at the vibrancy in the photo taken by Jim Budman, hand over heart, and by Robert T. Williams, I know that everything is going to be alright. painT is no longer a seed by now in roots begin to grow. More updates shortly....

“I believe that it may happen that one will succeed, and one must not begin to despair, even though defeated here and there; and even though one sometimes feels a kind of decay, though things go differently from the expected, it is necessary to take heart again and new courage. For the great things are not done by impulse, but by a series of small things brought together. And great things are not something accidental, but must certainly be willed. What is drawing? How does one learn it? It is working through an invisible iron wall that seems to stand between what one feels and what one can do.” - Vincent van Gogh
