Welcome to George Delany Art, Home to Uniquely Creative Art & Prints of Instagrams, Photos, Paintings & Americana Poster Art, limited edition prints and original art.
As a small boy, George Delany began drawing likenesses of Abe Lincoln on his Winky Dink screen, one his mother had given him as a birthday present. Mom noticed! In elementary school mom took him for weekly art lessons. In sixth grade, the teacher hung his drawing of a horse...on the wall for all to see. He won second place. During middle school, George was able to study drawing with Rex Gorleigh, in Princeton, New Jersey. George drew some odd stuff, typographic letters, individual words, more typography, then...more chalk drawings of horses and landscapes, famous Jon Gnagy landscape scenes he loved to try to emulate...like "The Covered Bridge." He went to art school.
Mr. Delany began taking photos in high school at the Milton Hershey School. He spent a pivotal summer studying art at Carnegie Mellon University. Later, he studied photography under a man named Harry Callahan at the Rhode Island School of Design, using his magnificent, $50 Zeiss camera with a spectacular Tessar lens. George has been snapping photos on and off, ever since. These days, he uses a small Nikon and his Apple iPhone, nothing fancy. He lives mostly in the digital world, now. His old Rollies, and his Nikon F2 sit on the shelf. The digital world is exciting. For some time, now, the call has been irresistible.
The artist has spent much of his career in the graphic design world serving early on as a young graphic designer, Art Director, then Creative Director. He founded his corporate communications design firm, first Delany Design Direction, later aaaForay, both award-winning visual communications companies. Mr. Delany's creative work has been included in many personal and a corporate collections and has been cited for excellence by a wide assortment of professional organizations.
"Painting now is my first love," the artist states. Though I painted and drew as a child, I put these skills away for many years and, fortunately, picked them up again after a long stint in the graphic design world. One of my paintings, a nude woman reading the paper, "My Stockbroker," won Best-of-Show at the Providence Art Club, the Grumbacher Award. This was a wonderful catalyst for all that has followed. I hope to add many more paintings to this website.
"I'm glad and honored some of my efforts hang in some nice collections, many private, but corporate, too," the artist states. These would include, among others, the National Monument at Ellis Island, Reagan, Iacocca collections; and the graphic design collection of the MOMA, and most recently, the Library of Congress. "A list of private collections...that would be an interesting list!," he says. "Many are friends or former clients, so there is often a warm personal connection and often, a history to these relationships."

"The sun comes over the top of the hill...
shines on fields I've yet to till...
my bones are weary but I know I will....
and not just because you ask it..."
