Wiregrass since January when he installed an exhibition at the
Wiregrass Museum of Art, titled “Storm.” Wandzel has been a
contributor to numerous community art projects and events
throughout his career and will be back in Dothan to participate in a
public mural project sponsored by the Murals of the Wiregrass board
on March 1.
To coincide with the Mural City Art Walk on March 1, Wandzel will be
the first contemporary artist to participate in the “Living Wall” project,
an exciting new initiative by the group. For his part, Wandzel will
collaborate with community members and visitors of the ArtWalk to
create a vibrant, interactive addition to downtown Dothan. The mural
will be located in Porter Park on North Foster.
Committed to painting from life, his work presents interest in the
human figure, with the focus primarily on the elasticity of the skin and
the form that it represents, thus allowing the eye to do what it does
naturally; bring colors and shapes into recognizable form.
Troy Wandzel was born in Golden Valley, Minnesota. He received a BFA
in Illustration at the Savannah College of Art and Design. Through out
his career as a painter, he has exhibited around the globe including
Sothebyʼs Auction houses and the Mona Bismarck Foundation in Paris.
His work is included in multiple collections and publications, both
nationally and internationally.
