Nahoma T. Wallace III
From the time he was a child, Nahoma always liked doodling with pencils, crayons and paint. Even though Nahoma is language impaired, he found art as another way to express himself. He uses anything he can get his hands on as a medium to create his art. He graduated in 2000 from Northview School. His art teacher Ms.Snowden, noticed Nahoma's unique style of art. For several years Nahoma attended classes at the St. Louis Artist Guild under the instruction of Mr. Jerry Thomas. He has donated works of art for charitable causes. In 2005 he tried his hand at nude abstract art and found that he enjoyed it very much. Nahoma has a unique style in which he draws his subjects. Nahoma’s art teacher Ms. Snowden entered him in his first show in 2000 at the Florissant Civic Center Theater Gallery. He won second place for the picture called "The Tulips". In April 2002 Nahoma did quite well winning 5 awards, including "Best Of Show" at the James Eagan Theater Art Gallery. Nahoma likes to use multimedia on most of his creations. He tends to use lots of colors on most of his works and he chooses to put his name anywhere he wants on his pictures. Sometimes his signature will end up smack dab in the center of the picture. His mother encouraged him in the beginning to keep that as his signature trademark. Once you own a piece of his work, you can say you own a "Nahoma". Even though he spends hours creating his art work Nahoma also enjoys biking, bowling, basketball, hitting golf balls, tennis, swimming, listening to jazz and R&B.
