THE COMEDY AND TRAGEDY OF MY LIFE & ART
My name is Hulbert Waldroup. I am a New York artist. My art has been featured in a number of commercials and campaigns, both here in the U.S. and abroad. My controversial Amadou Diallo mural has been the subject of numerous news articles in major newspapers. My murals are in some of New York’s prestigious schools. I also do commissions.
I absolutely love to travel. The greatest thing about traveling is that it allows you to step out of your own orbit. When you are an artist that is important to your craft. Your visual plane becomes so much broader. I have had the opportunity to travel to a number of countries. I have met people from all walks of life.
I have a number of social web pages. I use them to display my art and upcoming events. More important, it is a vessel for me to develop a rapport with fellow artists & art lovers around the world. It is very cathartic to have dialog from different points.
If you want to know more about me or my art, feel free to reach out. I look forward to hearing from you.
