Atlanta artist Charly Palmer has developed a national following for his figurative painting that integrates collaged elements with painted figurative images of African-American history and culture. Born in Alabama and raised in Wisconsin, Charly Palmer studied art and design at the American Academy of Art and the School of the Art Institute, both in Chicago. After a successful career as a graphic designer and illustrator, Palmer developed a distinctive graphic style in his fine art. His Story is a very good example from popular Civil Rights series. Today his artwork is found in many private and public collections including Atlanta Life Insurance, McDonald's Corporation, Miller Brewing Company, the Coca Cola Company and Vanderbilt University. The artist also has been the recipient of significant commissions including an official poster for the 1996 Olympics and the Atlanta Convention and Visitors Bureau.
