About Wade

Wade Harrison was encouraged to express himself through art from the very beginning. Growing up in the late 60’s and 1970’s, Wade became heavily influenced by the tide of the Black Power movement.

Taking self-awareness cues from his mother and coupling that with the creative talent of his photographer father, Wade gravitated toward revolutionary musical expressions. He consequently became influential in the emerging Toledo graffiti art revolution under the tag “Swade”.

“I am not a lyricist or a musician or a singer... I am an artist in love with these instances of self expression and choose to dialog through my paintings with others who share this love.”

Wade continued his art education at the Art Institute of Pittsburgh. Following a brief stint with an ad agency in graphic design, Wade concentrated more on his work as a fine artist. His style has since evolved into an exploratory freedom reflective of the music that captivates him.

    I'm so sad I missed it! I love Octane! I usually work during the days on Saturdays.. I would love to stop by sometime during the week to grab a coffee and see a demo after class (I am obtaining a BFA at Georgia State). It's right down the road from Octane.
