Wade Hampton American, b. 1975

Birthed in the state forged by Native Americans, Civil War battles, blues and folk music, diamonds, and nine students that helped establish the spirit of the civil rights movement, Wade Hampton was provisioned with inspiration that would lay claim to a unique  journey of artistic declaration.

The history of the ‘Natural State’ broadened Wade’s view to seek education within the ‘Show-Me State’.  That which gave way to the lifestyle and culture of the ‘Big Apple’.  This ‘gateway to the world’ is where Wade honed his artistic talents on the canvas.  Leading him to an artisan’s approach towards dance and movement.
