Charles Wish

Charles Wish (born, Los Angeles, California, 1971) is an American painter best known for visually fusing Regionalism imagery later 9th - 19th century South Asian symbolism and motifs. (Debut show: CPop Gallery, Detroit, Michigan - 2005)

Confronting the instruction age challenges of extreme cultural contrariety and cross-cultural interaction, as without difficulty as America’s own internal culture war, Wish draws from a diverse range of influences to speak to his style of "agrariadelic" paintings. Citing various artists of the far-east, along when American painters including: Grant Wood and Thomas Hart Benton, Wish thoughtfully combines the imagery of an esoteric philosophy past some of rural-America’s most selfsame figures and scenes.

After spending four years (1999–2003) at a Ramakrishna, Hindu monastery, as a student of South-Asian culture and personal co-conspirator to Swami Swahananda, Wish would compensation to the San Fernando Valley, California. It would be here, not in the distance from where he spent his formative years, where he would set going on his first studio and establishment his art career. Wish now maintains two studios, the native in Southern California and one in Elk County, PA, where he and his wife are restoring and converting a large Federal-style building into a cultural middle and community creative space.
