Walter W Impert’s art has been widely exhibited in Los Angeles, New York City, and around the country. He is known for his Realism, a hybrid of Romantic and Classical attitudes, mixing delicate plays of light within rigorous compositional structures. Formerly, Walter’s art was more strictly “realistic,” focusing on cityscapes and candlelit interiors. In recent years, however, he has moved toward a more free flowing kind of imagery, with complex changes from color to black and white within each art work. The paintings have become more fanciful, filled with imagery taken from the natural world.
Walter has lived in Los Angeles, CA, since 1980. He has had four one person shows at the Orlando Gallery in the 1980’s, has shown his work in numerous other venues, such as the Municipal Art Gallery at Barnsdall Park, and most recently, in 2014, had a solo show at the Happy Lion Gallery in Chinatown, an area known for its contemporary art galleries (as well as for Chinese food).
Walter received an MFA from the University of Denver and received a BA from Duke University in Art History. He has been teaching all areas of “2D” art since 1988 at Mt San Antonio College, Pasadena City College, and LA Valley College, among others.
