Freddie L. Styles (b. 1944)

Freddie L. Styles, an Atlanta-based abstract artist, was born in 1944 in Madison. A graduate of Morris Brown College in Atlanta, Styles credits the inspiration for his work to his rural upbringing. He has served as an artist-in-residence at several educational institutions, including Clark Atlanta University and Spelman College in Atlanta, and Clayton State University in Morrow. He also served as director of City Gallery East in Atlanta from 2003 to 2008.
In 2001 Styles received a grant from the King Baudouin Foundation Cultural Exchange Program through the Community Foundation of Greater Atlanta, which allowed him to work and study in Belgium. His works have been exhibited at the High Museum of Art in Atlanta, Telfair Museums in Savannah, the Tubman African American Museum in Macon, and the Bill Hodges Gallery in New York City.
Styles’s acrylic painting C Series #2 (1977) is part of Georgia's State Art Collection.
