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.
