He has been recognized internationally, nationally, and locally for my works of art. His paintings have been published in several art magazines. Additionally, he has donated many pieces of art for charitable purposes.

Using mainly acrylic, oil, and graphite, Privett uses bold colors to entice people to “walk down a side street they would normally ignore, to visit a place, stay a while, and enjoy the moment of being one with the art.”

For the most part Privett considers himself self-taught. He learned basics in high school art class, and later attended several arts classes. “I particularly enjoyed the class taught by Olen Bryant at APSU,” he says.

“When I work on a piece of art, my process and vision for each work is deeply personal,” he explains. “Sometimes I struggle even to find the right words to describe my work when it is completed because I have my own personal and intimate connection with the piece just as each viewer of the work will have their own personal connection. I feel that art is truly in the eye of the beholder because of the emotions and feelings that connect a person to a particular work of art.”
