Gregory Euclide is an artist and teacher living in the Twin Cities of Minnesota. His attraction to the landscape originates from his experience of growing up in the rural landscapes of Wisconsin. Free to roam from farm field to forest edge, he developed an appreciation for authentic experience within the natural landscape. The complexity and interconnectedness of the environment had a profound impact on him as a child and would become the content and conceptual framework for his future work.
After teaching high school art for three years in southern Minnesota, he took a teaching job in the Twin Cities. In 2001 Gregory was awarded a summer residency at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design. This time allowed him the opportunity to explore a number of materials and techniques important to the development of later works. In the past few years Gregory has shown his work at over one hundred events and locations in the Twin Cities. He has been awarded a a Minnesota State Arts Board Artist Initiative Grant and a Jerome Foundation Residency through the Blacklock Nature Sanctuary. Currently he is teaching high school art and attending graduate school at The Minneapolis College of Art and Design on a Trustee Scholarship.

That damn song (Alanis Morissette) starts to play in my head now. But it seems ole Obey Giant (Shepard Fairey) has filed a complaint with this guy (I have never heard of until now) Baxter Orr for copying his work…Ironic? Karma? Or maybe this Baxter kid should get his own ideas? However you may see it, Fairey’s request just gave this kid a name (or 15 minutes) in the design-pseudo art world. This brings a new second level twist on Picasso’s “Good artists copy, great artists steal.” What do you think, we would love to hear…
Charles Osborne (1894– May 1, 1991) hiccuped continuously for 68 years (1922-1990). Osborne, from Anthon, Iowa, U.S., was entered in Guinness World Records as the man with the Longest Attack of Hiccups. The hiccups started in 1922 at a rate of 40 times per minute, slowing to 20 hiccups per minute and eventually stopping on June 5, 1990, a total of 68 years. His condition also led him to be a guest on Ripley’s Believe It or Not! in 1936, ABC’s That’s Incredible! in 1980, The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson in 1983 , and to be featured as a question in the board game Trivial Pursuit.
Osborne began hiccuping in 1922, while slaughtering a hog. Despite his condition, Osborne was able to lead a normal life, and was even married two times. Osborne died of complications from ulcers at Marian Health Center in Sioux City, Iowa on May 1, 1991 and he was buried in Oak Hill Cemetery in Anthon, Iowa three days later. It has been estimated that Osborne hiccuped 430 million times over the 68 year period. The average human only hiccups about 2,300 times in an average lifetime. – Wikipedia
Damn that sucks, he died right after it finally stopped, poor guy.
