Mixed media on paper | 12" x 9"
Originally from Hewitt, Texas, Ethan Walton (b. 2002) lives and attends school in Austin. As a DeafBlind artist with CHARGE Syndrome, observing the world is a specialty of Ethan’s. Ethan uses his unique level of hearing and visual functioning to make observations and interpret them through his art. His choices and study of an object or of an interaction are careful and intentional, and he demonstrates his thoughtfulness through every step of his artistic process. His art—which is often darkly humorous in nature—reflects his personality. Ethan's preferred mediums are graphite, markers, acrylic and tempera paint, and Wite Out, and he is especially drawn to black and white paint, though his work demonstrates a sophisticated sense of color. Ethan has been a gallery artist at SAGE Studio since February 2021.
