Wright, a self taught artist from Alamo, started off painting portraits of his friends. He has emerged as a design icon doing work for KVRX Austin Radio, as well as creating shirt, sticker, logo and poster designs for local and Texas organizations. Wright enjoys using various mediums to create his artwork including collage, screen print, spray paint, oils, acrylics and watercolors. He is influenced by everything from Caravaggio to movie posters and video games. He finds inspiration from the people around him whom he admires and loves.
In regards to his work Wright said, “I try to have fun with my art, never forgetting where I come from and where I want to go.”
“Wright’s artwork is witty and enlightening,” said Sofia K. Vestweber, STC Library Art Gallery Program associate. “His attention to detail and creative enthusiasm radiates throughout his works.”
South Texas College’s Library Art Gallery Program exhibits regional, national and international artwork, explores new visions and theories of creativity, and introduces innovative artistic expressions to the South Texas region.
