C. R. Wells
A native Washingtonian, C. R. Wells has been creating art for over 50 years. He is self taught. His artwork has been displayed in juried exhibits and galleries throughout the Greater Washington Metropolitan DC area. During his career, his art has been featured in several comic strip series and he even illustrated a book. Also, C.R. Wells’ artwork “Grinning Cockroach” was selected the Juror’s Choice. It was published in the Prince George’s Community College “Reflections Magazine” Fall 2015 and displayed in the art gallery. Currently, his artwork is in an ongoing exhibit at Everlasting Life Restaurant, Capital Heights, Maryland.
Having little finances, C.R. Wells has been very creative in obtaining art supplies. He has created art with whatever supplies he had available. Many of his pieces of art were drawn in pencil, ink or crayon on regular white paper or cardboard. Not having the proper supplies NEVER deterred him from his love for creating art. When finances permitted, he painted, painting a series of entertainers. In the latter years he developed a love for abstract art, and began creating many beautiful abstract pieces of art. His work includes abstracts, portraits, collages and multimedia art.
