Introduction by Craig Tracy
Magic has many incarnations and "visual magic" exists whenever my friend Wolf paints on a human body. His dedication and passion to create images that inspire and delight have kept me smiling for years. His ambitious desire propels his art beyond conventional boundaries and his images seem to have a unique language of their own. Beauty, mystery, intrigue and shear power radiate from every brushstroke. The Bodypainting world has been greatly influenced by his tremendous talent and he is one of only a handful of artists that have been able to be so impactful in what is a very ancient yet ultra contemporary art form. You only need to see his dynamic images once and their impact will be forever with you like a mental tattoo.
Seeing Wolf's work live is yet another magical experience. The ultra violet spectrum of color that he often utilizes in his work combined with his masterful design work seem to dance before your eyes. I've now had the please of seeing his live paintings many times and the thrill is always the same. I'm continually amazed and impressed with his work and I've enjoyed seeing his designs and techniques gracefully evolve. He seems to have a hunger for continuing to delight his piers, collectors and fans. It's a hunger that drives his passionate work deeper and farther then that of his fellow artists and I hope that he remains this way forever.
I've now had the good fortune of really getting to know this complex and gifted man who is responsible for such astounding art. His friendship continues to inspire me and I hope that we will have many more years to drink, laugh and be creative. The world is certainly a better and more interesting place with Wolf and his work in it. Cheers to Wolf and his future work.
