Eugene Judge grew up in Long Beach NY. He has a BFA from The School of Visual Arts in NYC and studied painting with innovative, conceptual artist Jack Potter for over five years. Eugene had a successful Illustrator career, but suddenly dropped out of the art world in pursuit of a normal life. After a long absence, his comeback art show "Action Figures" is the study of pop and video game culture in a MTV generation style. His colorful figurative "New Wave" paintings speak of a lost childhood spent in loud strobe light flashing arcades.
