Wallace Piat


My name is Wallace, and the art I create is based on 4 points of interest.  Observe, Recognize, Sympathize and React. I read a lot on history, watch the political spectrum and indulge in Pop culture.  These are my observation points. I then recognize pros and cons of the social system, but being a pessimist a bit (haha) I relate to the cons. I then sympathize.... I've always been for the under­ dog, the poor, the working man. People of color and the bullied of the materialistic society.  I then react with my art and creations. Now as far as inspiration on a visual sense I am drawn to industrial environments, layers of old street art, vintage imagery of past cultures and past chaos of my own life. On the other side of the coin I love blatantly bright colors, graphics with a bold pop feel, and modern minimal settings. The work I compose is an eccentric combination of these two vastly different areas of artistic visions.

I am anything but regular and my life has become much more orderly with recovery from past demons of recklessness.  Sobriety has made my work ethic and creativity soar exponentially and made my artistic life worth living every minute.  The art I have created lately has more depth and meaning to me. This is in direct correlation to my lifes mistakes and the changes I have made

to make it better.

I love to create.
