We are sadden to announce that Popular Rochester, New York artist and actor, Greg Polisseni has died at the of 50.

Confirming his death was Tom Malloy from Shermaan Oaks, Gregs cause of death was not officially made known to the public as at the time of writing this report.

Greg was a Film producer, an Artist, Philanthropist, and Fashion Designer
When he was 13 years old, he lost his 18 year old sister in a car accident, devastating to the family, but an event which would become an integral part of Greg’s development.

Being the youngest, he isolated himself, with no outlet except for his art.

RELATED NEWS:

From Rochester, New York, the Greg family helped build Paychex from a garage idea to a multi-billion dollar company. As the youngest in the family, Greg isolated himself from his art without a way out.

While still a senior in high school, Greg enrolled at the California Institute of the Arts to study fine art and graphic design, but was pressured to focus on business instead. He graduated from St. Bonaventure University, where he specialized in marketing and fine arts. His art և real self-expression was set aside, creating an inner communication that he was not even aware of … a communication that he would not be able to overcome for many years.

For the next 20 years, Greg traveled through various businesses, always trying to find some form of art in his life: graphic design, music promotion, sales, and film production. Many people standing next to him saw a man in deep trouble. He had to make a choice to turn around and take control of his life.

This is exactly what he did through his art, which is an expression of the inner peace he found. Looking at his beautiful, passionate summaries, you can see the battles, the inner battles, the eyes of the storm, where there is peace.

In early 2013, this time in his own garage, he came up with the idea for Artistix. It will be a clothing line based on her paintings, so people who wear clothes will know that they come from a real artist. The ultimate goal is for each new season release to be based on one of Greg’s summaries. The initial release is based on his “Stars և Stripes” painting, the interpretation of the United States flag, which was shot in VA hospitals, Obama Whitehouse, and other veterans’ associations in the country.

    His work was not in VA Hospitals or at the Obama White House. In fact there was also never any “Sand or grass” from Iraq/Afghanistan in the original painting. He stiffed numerous vet charities off his bogus fundraising claims. He was a fraud a drunk and a liar.
