Art can be a channel through which to release thoughts and feelings that accumulate in other aspects of life, or a response to them. This is not the case for Greg Beebe. This Miami-based mixed media artist is also a successful financial entrepreneur that approaches his art practice with the same intention as he does his business interests…with an unstoppable impulse to create.

"Dreamer II" calls to light the level of intensity, drive and motivation one must have to completely follow a dream. With so many self or societally imposed walls and obstacles, rights and wrongs, one must be a superhero to rip past everything and follow a dream. Anarchy signs are shown throughout the piece particularly in the Superman "S" furthering the point that one must ignore the "taught" and think independently and outside the norm to achieve a dream.
