Jamaican artist Sean (pronounced SEE-on) Wallace has developed a stunning new style of artistry through the use of repurposed barbed wire and recycled windows.

His exhibit is titled “Windowz of Opportunity,” and it will be on display in the Auditorium Gallery at Hopkinsville Community College through Jan. 31.

The exhibit features nearly 50 of his one-of-a-kind designs, including portraits, logos, monograms, signature pieces and sculptures. Wallace blends the concepts of strength, softness and beauty through the unique use of barbed wire to fashion art in both two and three dimensions. Recently, Wallace also has begun sculpting 3-D and life-sized pieces. In addition to his barbed wire art, Wallace’s body of work also includes vibrant, original paintings and murals.

In addition to being a gifted artist, Wallace is also a vocalist and musician who plays a variety of instruments. He is one of thirteen children raised in a loving, but disadvantaged home in Silent Hill Jamaica.
