Dennis Wells
“I can never remember a time when art was not a part of my life. From a young age I
was fascinated by art and spent hours drawing on any surface available. Art is my
passion and my outlet.”

Primarily a self taught artist he is driven by what he describes as an “almost compulsive need to create”. Dennis has an abstract objective style with heavy cubist influences. He frequently uses heavy bold line work and bright colors to render his distorted
interpretations of his subjects. Although he works in wide array of mediums the majority of his work is in Acrylics and/or Pen and Ink. Dennis has work in public and private collections across the country. He also has several public art pieces and murals in the city of Winston Salem. Dennis was commissioned by the city of Winston Salem to create a large piece of Maya Angelou which hangs near the main entrance to the Benton Convention Center and has had
work in shows at the South Eastern Center for Contemporary Art (SECCA). His work has been featured in the Winston Salem Journal, Triad City Beat, and Emmet
t Magazine among others.
