This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Reginald Baylor (b.1944)

Born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin in November of 1966, Baylor attended the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh from 1984 to 1988, majoring in sculpture and taking philosophy courses.  After college, he went to California and worked for the Laguna Beach Art Museum and Newport Beach Art Museum (1991-1993).  He set aside sculpting and began painting in acrylics and exhibited in California.

In 1995, he and his family moved to Chicago, Illinois, where Baylor entered the trucking business.  He never gave up his art, though, and when returning to Milwaukee in 1998, he began exhibiting at galleries and museums there.

In 2007 he received an artist residency grant at Ragdale in Lake Forest, Illinois and subsequently gave up the trucking business to concentrate full time on his art.

In 2009, Baylor served as artist-in-residence at the Pfister Hotel, Milwaukee, where he was exposed to the  period architecture and extensive Victorian art collection of the Pfister.  This influence led him to incorporate putti, or winged angels, and Corinthian columns into new compositions.  The residency also gave Baylor a chance to learn more about the business side of being an artist such as marketing and planning.

His works are often colorful, including pop culture figures such as the Kool-Aid Man, Pac-Man, or Mickey Mouse.  Baylor doesn’t feel that colors are the strongest part of his work.  Instead, he considers his unique approach and process the vital aspect of his art. “It’s the lines and how I do the colors, how I approach a painting. I look at it numerically.”  His figures sail and float through his compositions, often images of  suburban streets, mid-century modern homes, the station wagon in the carport, tidy little interiors.

He works out of his Studio in Milwaukee's Historic Third Ward, supported by his staff.
