Though he grew up in the windy city of Chicago, Wayne Bell spent his teenage years in Texas before moving to Atlanta to pursue a B.A. in Psychology at Morehouse College. Not satisfied with a narrow scope of education, he also eagerly studied anatomy, physiology, and medical science. Upon graduation, he went west, and spent the next decade honing his craft in Los Angeles. As it seems everyone else does, though, he found himself back in Texas. Houston specifically.
Though never classically trained, Wayne has always obeyed the urge to create; from his early days building with Legos, all the way to the refined brush technique that now defines his practice.

Wayne Bell calls the movement Atmospherism because it defines what can be made from time and space: how it can be shifted and molded and synchronized into almost a climate of its own.
His forms compel the viewer to recognize patterns within themselves. It lends perspective with the saturation in its color and light. The striations generated from the the brushstrokes create gradients of hues.
