Cam Wallace

Campbell Wallace grew up in Edmonton, Alberta.  He began drawing in earnest at the age of four, and completed his Bachelor of Fine Arts degree at the University of Alberta in 2000.  He has maintained a studio practice focusing on acrylic and oil portrait painting, primarily working from a growing collection of vernacular photographs appropriated from various sources.  The found images chosen for these narrative portraits depict ordinary yet compelling people and situations with the potential to resonate long after first being viewed.

Cam works as the Technician Demonstrator for Visual Fundamentals and Drawing & Intermedia at the University of Alberta.  An active member of the Northern Alberta Wood Carvers’ Association, he also plays the great highland bagpipe alongside the Wajjo West African Drum Group.  Most recently, he’s been learning guitar in his one spare hour a week.
