Norman Wyatt

A native Virginian, Wyatt lives in the city in which he was born. He studied art at Virginia State University, where he earned a bachelor’s degree in Visual Communications, Art, and Design.

Wyatt believes his technique and style are most influenced by Klimpt and other impressionists. He starts his paintings by applying layers of acrylics on paper or canvas and then uses his own unique weathering technique to reveal various shades and textures. Finally, he adds details via stamping, pen and ink, and dry brushing.

Wyatt loves to collect pottery and earthy, rich-toned décor. “At one point, I worked in an African gift shop, so textures and patterns seem to roll off of my palette.” One of his favorite things is the beauty of autumn. “I would say that nature and the constant changes of nature inspire me the most.”
