Question Painting signed "gris"

I have a painting of an older wise man smoking something. It appears to be painted on banana leaves or something similar. It is signed, "gris" in the lower left corner. Does anyone know the artist or value of this?

I don't recognize the description, but gris is french for grey-possibly a lead *shrugs*

I too, have a painting (oil I believe) signed "Gris" which is painted on large leaves - subject is bright colored birds. Does anyone have any more information on this artist?

Default Gris paintings

I also have a set of these paintings. Mine are of tropical birds. Found them in a secondhand store for 20 dollars. I love them and was wondering if they hold any monetary value.

Default gris

I too have a gris painting of two colorful birds on limbs w/berries. My mother got it at a garage sale years ago, it did come with COA from Creative Interiors, but I can't seem to find info on it either.

Lightbulb Gris oil painting (old wise man smoking pipe)

I also have a similar painting of the old wise man smoking pipe. There is alot of information about a french artist Juan Gris on the Internet but he painted a completely different type of art and used a different signature (very very expensive art,held the highest price at auction ever, $20.8 million for a number of years). This could be the same artist who painted these works with the different signature at some point in his life or it could be a unknown artist. Hopefully someone may have more information about these Gris pieces and whether Juan Gris at some point in his life may have completed different style paintings.

I haven't seen your paintings but I believe they are painted on Tabacco Leafs like this one.

Default Gris birds

I found two of these birds today in a second hand store in Sydney. They were framed, badly, with quite cheap frames in Singapore. Obviously this artist painted many of these, over and over, I'd say for tourists.
Of course it's not Juan Gris but it would be lovely to know who this artist was.

I found some of these birds today signed Gris. They were framed cheaply in Singapore. Maybe Gris painted these old men and birds for tourists? Mine have purple flowers.
