About Curtis Wallin:
Wallin, an American sculptor, painter, scenic designer, is the creator and curator of a conceptual art initiative entitled WALLINDIA. WALLINDIA, a country, was founded by Curtis and his wife, Julie, where he is King and she his consort and Queen. The art of WALLINDIA is wide ranging, from monumental sculptures and iconographic light based relief sculptures to historical hand painted posters and billboards on barns. The art of WALLINDIA is always expanding, creating the mythology and the faux propaganda of this wonderful country whose motto is "FUN & PRETTY".
Wallin currently is working on a public artwork for NYC Art in the Parks program. His sculptures have been featured in the Chanel gardens at Rockefeller Center in NYC and in DUMBO, NYC. He was named one of the top 150 emerging artists in New York City in the prestigious CURATE NYC show at the Rush Gallery. He was also named one of "Three to Watch" in the September/October 2012 issue of Fine Art Connoisseur magazine. He had his second solo show in NYC at West 40 Arts in the fall of 2014. In addition, his landscapes were featured at the Thomas Cole National Historic Site, in the "Postcards from the Trail" exhibition in 2012.
During his career, Wallin has designed the scenery and projections for more than 20 theatrical productions, concerts and operas working in both the classical and the avant-garde, including the Seattle Opera, San Francisco Opera, The Austrian Cultural Forum, UCLA, and Santa Fe Pro Musica. He has consulted in Moscow on American musicals. Wallin designed the welcoming pavilion for the NY Botanical Gardens and their Children's Benefit Concert, "Peter Yarrow and Friends".
