Gerry Hubert began his art career in 2010, after a portrait he had given Lady Gaga, the first of many he would paint of her, was displayed on the "Oprah Winfrey Show." The first public showing of his early Lady Gaga paintings at Skylight Studios in Charlottesville, Virginia received recognition from local and regional media outlets on NPR, Newsplex, and The Daily Progress. His depictions of contemporary subjects painted in an old-world style have continued to attract the attention of Internet, radio, television, and print media, including recurring feature stories written by Mike Allen for the "Roanoke Times." He has run two art galleries where he resides in Roanoke, Virginia, the first of which won him awards in "City Lifestyles Magazine" alongside longtime local artists and galleries. Through his work he also has won national contests and gained praise and gratitude from entertainment industry personalities including Lady Gaga, Shirley Manson, James St. James, Lisa Vanderpump, Anderson Cooper, and Andy Cohen of "Watch What Happens Live," who has added Hubert's portrait of his dog Wacha to the set of his show “Watch What Happens Live” on Bravo Television.
