Sean Wal­lis was born and raised in Utah, where he cur­rently re­sides with his wife and chil­dren. Wal­lis hailed from an artis­tic fam­ily—his fa­ther is renowned im­pres­sion­ist painter Kent R. Wal­lis. It wasn’t un­til Sean was 21 years old in the midst of study­ing his­tory in col­lege that he ap­proached his fa­ther to learn to re­ally paint. Ev­ery Satur­day for five years, the fa­ther-son duo would spend the day paint­ing out­doors. As an im­pres­sion­ist, Sean pays close at­ten­tion to the re­la­tion­ship of light and color, cap­tur­ing its fleet­ing mo­ments with the tex­ture of oil paint and a broad, color­ful pal­ette. His skill­ful work with light and hue is man­i­fested through a com­bi­na­tion of col­ors that vi­brates and ex­cites the eye, re­sult­ing in an un­canny il­lu­sion of depth. Wal­lis is rep­re­sented at Ann Korol­o­gos Gallery in Basalt, Colorado, and Jane Hamil­ton Fine Art in Tuc­son, Ari­zona.
