Walter Bailey

Detroit, MI, United States

Across two centuries of doing aRT, my career is marked by the search for the next great creative horizons. Through twelve transitional eras, I focused my aRT on new innovations in conceptual design. During the 1960s Cultural Revolution, I crash old barriers to define a unique style, theme, and expression to distinguish my Black Expressionist aRT Medium from the traditional. By 1977 the revolutionary Reverse aRT Technique fusing color to a smooth acrylic polymer panel was born. aCRYLIC Fusion aRTs Medium became my single signature aRTform recognizable by disciplined stylizations and pioneering 2 and 3-dimensional genres. I followed the aRTist creed to experiment with new mediums and explore my infinite craft. I followed new dimensions, in the Creative Continuum, and change the aRTist to the innovator. After moving to Detroit in 1994, my aRTistic achievements, awards, exhibitions, and public aRT installations include two book covers, the Bombay Sapphire 2014 Finalist, Charles H. Wrights's 2008 Legacy Award, and the International Institutes of Metropolitan Detroit award for aRT and history, 2019. Today I seek to pass aRTlife experiences to emerging Next-Gen Visionary aRTists of this century and the next.
