Chaz Well

Waterbury, Connecticut

 

     Chaz Well has been an award winning artist since his high school days.  In 2011, Well started at the University of Hartford, Hartford Art School in the graphic design field.  He eventually changed his major to sculpture, pushing himself to work more with material and process.  Well painted on his off time from school experimenting with color and abstract expressionism. 

     Well's passion for painting grew and he then experimented with mixing the two mediums together, creating sculptural paintings which he still experiments and practices to this day.

     Chaz Well graduated from the University with a Bachelors in Fine Arts (BFA).  Still painting, sculpting, and showing.  Well then worked on his magazine, Phat Lip Mag, a 36 painting Cell Phone Series, and his "Infinity Paintings" which are physically and metaphorically  moving artworks on a loop.

     After working on those projects in a 5 year span, Well, has since moved onto more freeing projects like his new series: First Impressions. This new body of works shows off Well's technical painting skill in mixed styles; mostly exploring impressionism and pixelation. This series also brings a video aspect of where these paintings live and how they're interacted with in "the real world". 

     Well pulls inspiration from his travels as an EMT, skateboarder, and artist. Being exposed to different cultures, unique locations, and local history; Creates a crockpot of imagination that Well pulls from frequently pushing the boundaries of fine art.
