Ted Collier is a visual artist, collector, gallerist, entrepreneur, and philanthropist living and working in St. Louis, Missouri and Los Angeles, California. His abstract paintings range from bold to subtle—from monochromatic to vibrantly colorful. Ted’s portfolio of work is incredibly diverse and represents various styles, but perhaps his most iconic works come from his circle series. On his Circle Series, Ted says:

“My hope, is that my work provides the viewer new meaning and perspective to familiar forms and colors while often finding elegance in simplicity. I am best known for my circle series, the inspiration for which was one of my earliest childhood memories of my family dancing to vinyl records on the record player. Each shiny, glossy circle symbolized more laughing and dancing.”
