Trained at the Pennsylvania
Academy of the Fine Arts, the United State’s oldest
art school in Philadelphia, Wassmann has developed a highly
realistic style using oil paints on masonite panels. The panels
allow for beautiful blends and ease in applying the final
details that make Wassmann’s work unique.
His realist style harkens back to the 19th
century realists that journeyed from the east coast to the
unexplored western part of the country. They returned with
stunning paintings of places that had never been seen before.
Wassmann hopes to recapture the publics imagination the same
way with his new series of Antarctica paintings.
