Freelance Digital Artist, Photographer & retired Creative Director at Art Gallery of Viera

...The Digital Art of Jerry Hanzl evolved out of his diverse backgrounds in computers and photography, along with commercial and fine art. He was educated at the Cooper School of Art, Control Data Institute and the Art Institute of Ft. Lauderdale. Now after many years of learning, Jerry tries to blend all of his skills into a medium that can only be understood as “painting with photography on a digital canvas."

...He first appeared on the local art scene in 2007, at a one-man show for the opening of his ”Taylor Panels”, a historical triptych. These panels are in the permanent collection at the Museum of History and Natural Science in Cocoa, Fl. By 2009, Jerry had created a collection of work which he featured in Truth or Dare’ a two-artist show, at the King Center for the Performing Arts in Melbourne, Fl. Later that year, he received national attention when Art Business News featured him as an ‘Emerging Artist.’ To further showcase his digital creations, Jerry helped found, Art Gallery of Viera and is Creative Director.

...Jerry is a surrealist at heart, in the spirit of Dali and Escher. His surreal-scapes are fantasy worlds meant to be travelled through with both the eyes and the mind.
