"The South is character filled and hauntingly romantic." -Witzel Art

The Man Behind the Art
John Witzel Walters is a self-taught Artist from South Carolina who uses acrylic on canvas to evoke thought and emotion through his dramatic art that takes colorful risks. Witzel’s art has been influenced by the eccentric life he has led, surviving both a ship sinking while working as a scuba diver in the Caribbean (2008) and the Georgetown Front Street Fires (2013) where he lost his home, art business and beloved dog in the flames. His artwork exposes both his love of the Lowcountry, his Southern roots, and the vibrant colors of the underwater Caribbean.
