A graduate of the Academy of Art University San Francisco, Taylor Wessling received his BFA in Illustration and also studied at UCLA where he completed the Advanced Graphic & Visual Communication program.

His work is characterized by a bold realism which holds onto attributes of mannerism and neo-expressionistic sensibilities. A combination of traditional media and digital refinement allow his work to be aggressively suggestive in narrative while being subtly sensual in form.

Wessling is the recipient of the Gold Medal in the category of Advertising from Spectrum. He also has been awarded a Gold Medal in Advertising from the Society of Illustrators Los Angeles. His work has been recognized by The Society of Illustrators New York and Los Angeles, Spectrum, Print Magazine, Communication Arts, 3x3 Magazine and American-Illustration. His paintings reside in numerous private collections worldwide.

Born in El Paso, Texas, Wessling now lives in Newport Beach, California with his fluffy black Chantilly Tiffany cat, Simon. He currently works as a graphic designer at Waveland Capital Group and freelance illustrator. Read Less
