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, 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 primary medium of artistic expression. Dr. Anthony Janson, editor of W.H. Janson's History of Art, has stated that Mr. 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 very attentive to craftsmanship and the fine details of cast bronze.
