Charles Waller was an award winning well respected artist and beloved fixture of the Hamptons art scene. In his early career as an illustrator Mr. Waller did drawings for The New York Times, The Boston Globe, Time and Esquire Magazines as well as other large corporate clients, including Citibank and American Express. His body of work was often inspired by treasures from antique treasures found on his travels from around the world. Found Objects, his brilliant meticulous illustrations and his signature wit were reconfigured into well-crafted visually impactful works of art commenting on the human experience. He studied English literature and psychology at the University of London and illustration at the Royal College of Art eventually graduating with a bachelor of fine arts with honors from Rhode Island School of Design. Mr. Waller's work appeared in numerous group and solo shows on the East End in addition to galleries in Manhattan, London, Japan, and Santa Fe. Collectors of his work included the late Alfred Hitchcock and Kirk Douglas. Ronald Reagan was presented with a drawing by Mr. Waller done for Time. His work is also in the collections of the Parrish Art Museum, Guild Hall, Micro Museum in Brooklyn, and the Dai-Nippon Gallery in Tokyo.
