Walter Lynn Mosley has been an artist all his life and started drawing at age 3. Walter began entering exhibitions and receiving awards in his early 20’s in California where he also received private instruction from Bob Gerbracht and earned a BA in Fine Art at San Jose State University before moving to New York for further study at the Art Students League with Frank Mason and other instructors.
Walter is an American Artists Professional League Fellow and has also exhibited with the Allied Artists of America, the Audubon Artists and the Salmagundi Club (all in New York) as well as the Greenhouse Gallery and the American Impressionists Society. He participated in the Easton Plein Air Arts Festival (2007) and the Teaching Studios of Art Plein Air Competition. (2011, 2012, 2013). Walter was the first artist chosen to participate in the Bryant Park Painter in Residence Program in 2012 and consequently the New York Times wrote an article which featured an interview with Walter and one of his paintings.
As an artist I delight in the visual world around me and consider it a joy to create. It’s my hope that the viewer will share in this enjoyment and my highest goal is to express a feeling that connects with the viewer.
What I strive for in painting is to faithfully represent light falling on 3-dimensional form in space. Of chief concern is rhythm; rhythm in the general sense as it applies to composition but more specifically to the rhythm (what is also termed “gesture”, “action”, or “flow”) in all living organisms but particularly in human beings. Harmony of color and design are also important elements.
