Scott Greene began his art education at the California College of Arts and Crafts in Oakland, eventually receiving his BFA from the San Francisco Art Institute and his MFA from the University of New Mexico in Albuquerque. Adopting the language and finish of classical painting, Greene draws inspiration from both art history and the contemporary social environment, to humorously examine the relationship between politics, nature and culture.
Greene’s work has been included in exhibitions across the US and internationally, including: non-profit and museum shows at Schneider Art Museum, Southern Oregon State University in Ashland, Oregon; Kohlar Art Center, Palo Alto Art Center in Palo Alto, California; Arnot Museum of Art in Elmira, New York; University of Virginia Art Museum, Virginia; The Albuquerque Museum in New Mexico; Austin Museum of Art in Texas; Carlsbad Museum & Art Center in New Mexico; and Triton Museum in Santa Clara, California.
His work is represented in the public collections of the Anderson Museum of Contemporary Art in Roswell in New Mexico and the McKesson Corporation in San Francisco. His paintings have been featured four times for New American Paintings and awarded among others the Juror Selection Award from Lubbock Fine Arts Center, an the Roswell Artist-in-Residency Fellowship.
