Charles Bourke Wildbank, native New York artist delved into photorealism while at Pratt Institute, created a sensation on Fifth Avenue with a giant sparkling rendering of the famed Cartier diamond, and has painted portraits of David Hockney and the late Luciano Pavarotti. He is well known for his versatility of a wide range of figurative themes including florals, still life, portraits and seascapes. 

His latest achievements include two 18-foot-high murals commissioned by the Cunard Line for the new luxury ocean liner, the Queen Mary 2. Wildbank is listed with some of his works in "Deaf Artists in America: Colonial to Contemporary" book by Deborah Sonnenstrahl . He has conducted workshops at Poppi in Italy during fall of 2002 and Giverny in France during spring of 2006. To view Wildbank's complete records, please check his chronology page link.

Up to present day, observable form and vivid color have long been attributed to Wildbank's art. His recent works appear to flirt with the abstract and the surreal christened as his HADO series. 

". . . the inner world for me is one vast camera obscura with all its images of light and ever-changing color. Then I seek outside for models to reflect that vision from within." -Charles Wildbank
