More about the Artist
Wilson has a well-rounded education in art, enabling him to hone his outstanding skills. In 1971, the artist enrolled at the prestigious North Carolina School of the Arts, where he experimented with various styles and also completed high school. He then attended the Maryland Instituteís College of Art in Baltimore, which brought him under the tutelage of Joseph Sheppard, an internationally-known realist painter. Sheppard became Wilsonís lifelong mentor; under his training, the artist began his evolution as a realist painter. After college, Wilson studied at the Schuler School of Fine Arts in Baltimore. In 1978, an exciting opportunity enhanced Wilsonís education when he was awarded the Greenshields Foundation grant to study painting in Florence, Italy. Since the early days of Wilsonís education and throughout his stellar career, he has refined his technique, using broad brushstrokes to create paintings that are immediate and of the moment.
A master of painting light and its effects on objects, Wilson often incorporates swatches of sunlight in his interiors. The artist has a command of extraordinary skills that allow him to take everyday objects and scenes and make them elegant. Wilson says, "Ö.the fun comes when playing with traditional concepts to create something entirely new.Ē The artist will take casual as sunflowers and place them in silver and porcelain vases for a fresh interpretation.
Wilson has had numerous solo showings across the country and participated in many group exhibits from north to south and east to west in America. The artistís many honors and awards commenced in 1978 and have continued; in 2006, he received the William Bouguereau Award for Emotion, Theme and The Figure at the Art Renewal Centerís Annual Salon.
