Biography

Greg Wyatt received his Bachelor of Arts degree in art history at Columbia College in 1971 and studied classical sculpture for three years at the National Academy of Design’s School of Fine Arts under sculptor Evangelos Frudakis, N.A. He earned his Masters of Arts degree at Columbia University, Teachers College in ceramic arts in 1974; in 1976 he was an Ed. D. candidate having completed his doctoral coursework in art education.

Greg Wyatt is a native of Grand View-on-Hudson, New York located south of Nyack, home of Edward Hopper. Mr. Wyatt was nurtured in the artistic tradition of his native Hudson River Valley at an early age by his father, Professor William Stanley Wyatt, painter and fine arts professor at Columbia University and the City College of the City University of New York.

Cast bronze is his medium of artistic expression. Dr. Anthony Janson, editor of W.H. Janson’s History of Art, has stated that Greg Wyatt’s work is based on the philosophy of “spiritual realism.” His mature style merges realistic images inspired by his readings of the Great Books content with creative masses of form, space and energy. His lyricism evokes poetry while his work process is attentive to craftsmanship and the fine details of cast bronze.
