Mr. Wheeler began painting at age 16. His first airbrush was a Paasche VL that his parents bought for his birthday. Unable to find any "how-to" information on airbrushing, Mr. Wheeler became a self-taught artist. There were no books or videos on the subject creating a difficult task for the young artist.
It was during this period that he met a man named Wendall Cooley at a local mall selling his work to the shopping population. He visited Wendall every chance he could, studying his techniques and style. After a while, Wendall allowed Geoffrey to take orders for him until he finally felt confident to go it on his own.
Many years later through hard work and patience, he landed an endorsement with Excalib-Air Paints. That arrangement allowed Mr. Wheeler to mingle with the top artists in the country. His unique style caught the eye of many of his peers. Some artists worth noting were Mark Rush, Don Ashwood, Terry Hill, and the man Mr. Wheeler feels most indebted to, Troy Michael Pierce. During his 5 year relationship with Excalib-Air, Geoffrey learned the ropes about the fine art of producing a superior product from William Edwards.
He held his first exhibit in New York City at LaBar Bat on 57th Street with overwhelming response. Poster ad work followed. He was also introduced to Scott Chester, the owner of Acid Paintwork & Graphics that put him to work on customizing bikes, helmets, jetskis and more.
Now he is here on the World Wide Web and the response has been tremendous.
