Greg Beauchamp’s peaceful demeanor and clear, shining eyes are striking to first behold. Living in Venice, California, he is known as an extraordinary advertising art director and conceptual artist, but if you ask Greg what he does, he will say that he makes simple things. “It is easy to decipher, when you keep it simple.”

With conviction, Greg remarks, “Creativity can solve anything. It can turn an idea into a gathering, a thought into a school, a life into motion.” Channeling his idealism, Greg highlights straight-forward, positive and loving messages in Xylene transfer prints for his Etsy shop, beauchamping.
