Biography John Wilde
Part of the Wisconsin Surrealist movement in the 1930s and 40s, John
Wilde was a Surrealist painter with focus on life and death through grotesque, doll-like
people in "otherworldly situations". Many of his paintings have old
bones, mutated female creatures, and dream-like landscapes, and
frequently he painted himself into his work. He also did detailed, colorful and eerily glowing still lifes.
His association with Surrealism began when he was a student at the
University of Wisconsin and became a friend of Marshall Glasier, that
Wisconsin Surrealist leader and his art teacher. He
joined Glasier at salons at his home where artists gathered to discuss
European modernism and other avant-garde topics.
