Watch Saint Louis artists Stan Chisholm and Peat "EYEZ" Wallaeger discuss their new artworks featured in "Keith Haring: Radiant Gambit." Each artist will talk about their creative process, chess connections to their work, and how Keith Haring's legacy has influenced their individual aesthetics.
South Saint Louis native Stan Chisholm works under the alias 18andCounting, building himself as an experimental music producer and multidisciplinary visual artist and educator. In 2009, he earned his Bachelors of Fine Arts from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Chisholm’s visual work takes an abstracted or socio-critical perspective using an ever-changing array of themes including character design, graphic abstraction, and text. Sonically, he produces hardware-driven tones of electronic and hip-hop genres with low tolerance for pop tactics.
Saint Louis native Peat Wollaeger is an internationally-known stencil graffiti artist famous for his signature EYEZ. They can be found around the city of Saint Louis, bringing life to inanimate objects on the streets, his murals, galleries, and the clothing in his EYEZbrand line. Wollaeger believes in public art as a way to beautify a community, to shape people’s lives, and to introduce art to people who may never step into a gallery. Most importantly, he believes art transforms cities and improves people’s quality of life.
