Scott Grieger
1946–

Introduction

Scott Grieger (born 1946) is an American artist based in Los Angeles. He attended Chouinard Art Institute in Los Angeles, California and received a B.F.A. from California State University, Northridge in 1971. His work has been exhibited internationally for over 40 years. He is a Professor and Program Director of Painting in the Fine Arts program at Otis College of Art and Design.

Grieger began his career during the 1970s in Los Angeles. As Suzanne Lacy writes, "There was a distinct advantage to living in Southern California’s non mainstream venues during the seventies, where an experimental art grew up outside of critical scrutiny and commercial interests." Among the artists working in Los Angeles during this period were: Paul McCarthy, Chris Burden, Martha Rosler, Allan Sekula, Alexis Smith. Grieger sees his work as challenging conventional wisdom and revealing hidden assumptions in both art and culture.
