Phillip Livingston is a contemporary American artist in Greenville, South Carolina, USA.
Combining hardedge precision with fluidity and chance, his abstract paintings explore such topics as order and chaos, urban decay, and the relationship between civilization and nature.
Influenced by abstract expressionists such as Robert Motherwell, Barnett Newman, Marc Rothko and Gerhard Richter, Phillip also shares a deep affinity for post-modern design and typography, most notably from the deconstruction and Bauhaus movements.
Born in Mobile, AL, Phillip studied art at the University of South Alabama where he received a BFA in Graphic Design and Painting. Prior to becoming a full-time artist, he worked as an art director at ad agencies in Boston, Washington DC and Atlanta. His paintings have sold to collectors both nationally and internationally.
