Wallin, an American sculptor, painter, scenic designer, is the creator and curator of a conceptual art initiative entitled WALLINDIA. WALLINDIA was founded by Curtis and his wife, Julie, where he is King and she his consort and Queen. The art of WALLINDIA is wide ranging, from monumental sculptures and iconographic light based relief sculptures to historical hand painted posters and billboards on barns. The art of WALLINDIA is always expanding, creating the mythology and the faux propaganda of this wonderful country whose motto is "FUN & PRETTY".
