During the past month or so, Georg Miciu seems to be everywhere. In a couple of recent fly fishing magazines, Gray's fly fishing issue and American Angler, for example, you've seen his work illustrating several pieces.
An Austrian who has lived most of his life in Argentina, Georg studies the landscapes that are familiar to his region. Family, ranching and, of course, angling feature prominently in his work. Stylistically it's impressionistic and the technique of using a knife or spatula when painting is a stunning effect. The canvases are thick with the image.

Equally impressive (perhaps more so, just don't tell his father) is his son's work. Emaus Miciu has followed in his father's footsteps. They seem cut from the same cloth both stylistically as well as subject matter. I understand there's another son who is a photographer. Quite the artistic clan.
