Charles Bourke Wildbank, native New York artist delved into photorealism while at Pratt Institute, created a sensation on Fifth Avenue with a giant sparkling rendering of the famed Cartier diamond, and has painted portraits of David Hockney and the late Luciano Pavarotti. He is well known for his versatility of a wide range of figurative themes including florals, still life, portraits and seascapes. 





His latest achievements include two 18-foot-high murals commissioned by the Cunard Line for the new luxury ocean liner, the Queen Mary 2. Wildbank is listed with some of his works in Deaf Artists in America: Colonial to Contemporary book by Deborah Sonnenstrahl . He has conducted workshops at Poppi in Italy during fall of 2002 and Giverny in France during spring of 2006. To view Wildbank's complete records, please check his chronology page link.





Up to present day, observable form and vivid color have long been attributed to Wildbank's art. His recent works appear to flirt with the abstract and the surreal christened as his HADO series. His studio in Jamesport is now open to the public by appointment. The artist can be contacted at: wildbank@wildbank.com  





This amazing artist has graciously permitted the use of his photograph, his bio and allowed me to use my favorite selections of his artwork.  If you would like to see more of his artwork and read more about the artist himself, visit:

Birth...and Death:

Douglas Tilden was born May 1, 1860 and died in 1935. He was born hearing, but lost his hearing to scarlet fever at the age of five.




Growing Up Deaf and Becoming a Sculptor:

Tilden attended the California School for the Deaf (CSD), and after graduation he worked at CSD. While working there, he began sculpting. Then he moved to France for awhile, and met a deaf sculptor there who taught him more about sculpting. 


Tilden made many sculptures, most of which are in San Francisco. Some of the sculptures are known by more than one name. 





Deaf Community Involvement:

Tilden found time out from sculpturing to be involved in the deaf community. He was: 
•A vice president of the World Federation of the Deaf 
•A president of the California Association of the Deaf 




Miscellaneous Tilden :

Tilden also did Medusa heads for the George W. Gibbs historic residence's portico, at 2622 Jackson St., San Francisco. He made a statue of senator Stephen White, in front of the Cabrillo Beach Museum in Los Angeles. The University of California, Berkeley library has the Douglas Tilden papers. Finally, the Oakland Museum of California, in Oakland, CA has a sculpture court, which may have Tilden statues, and the Hearst Art Gallery at St. Mary's College of California may also have Tilden works.

Some people have the ability to capture the world around us, to freeze it in time and hold it in place, to give us the opportunity to look, to think, to figure out how we feel, and to decide how we want to respond regarding what we see... I will be showcasing Deaf Artists from a variety of genres over the next few pages.

The following page recognizes the talent and skill of two amazing artists: 

Charles Bourke Wildbank, a painter, whose work in photorealism takes my breath away and inspires my soul.  

Douglas Tilden, a sculptor, who captured humanity and set it on a pedestal for all to see.

​". . . the inner world for me is one vast camera obscura with all its images of light and ever-changing color. Then I seek outside for models to reflect that vision from within." -Charles Wildbank
