About the author

Dismas and GrissyG, born in Corozal Town, Belize, Central America, met in 1999 while earning their Associates degree in Art and Multimedia at Los Angeles Mission College, (LAMC). After completing their degrees, they established GrisDismation as a signature for their collaborative work to live a life of learning and creating out of the ordinary art. Dismas is intrigued by the visual and emotional connections Art can make with an audience. This intrigue to make connections inspires Dismas to draw, paint, sculpt, play guitar, write music and produce original stories. Dismas also draws inspiration from artists such as Monet for his impressionistic style and Salvador Dali for his surrealism. With a mix of Impressionism and Surrealism, Dismas paints in a soak and stained technique creating water color effects with acrylic paints. Dismas completed an Associates degree in Art in 2003 and is currently exploring optical illusion art through producing, Small Mask the Movie, a series of paintings about a fictional character that takes the audience on an illusionary journey through the mind of a schizophrenic patient.
