Greg Vega is an American Filmmaker, Artist, and OEF Veteran. He learned and earned as a F-15 fighter Jet mechanic in the United States Air Force. During his seven years of honorable service, he became inspired by the teamwork and dedication he witnessed in the military. He chose to pursue a BFA in Motion Pictures and Television from the Academy of Art University because, he recognizes the sacred power of creating art. Wanting to pay tribute to more forms of art, he set off to China to study Mantis Fist Kung Fu for a summer in 2013. Upon returning to the states he completed an MBA from the University of Redlands. In summer of 2016 he spent 4 months painting, showing, and selling art on Venice beach. Looking for a fresh perspective, he set out to Southeast Asia in 2017 to travel and leave a trail of artwork behind. He hasn't returned to the US since. In every medium of his work, he actively pursues ways to reflect the Paradoxical Connection between Truth & Beauty and War & Art.
