Abstract Expressionist, George Abend "developed a gestural, theatrical form of action painting, generally with an underpinning of natural forms" (Albright) in the 1950s and 1960s. He was one of the first visual artists to work with the environmental light and sound program, Vortex. Later in the 1970s he painted large abstract canvases designed to be installed as room-sized environments.

He was active on the East Coast between 1962 and 1966, in Los Angeles between 1966 and 1969, and in Bi (showing 500 of 2681 characters).
