Wagner's unique brushstroke and warm color palette evokes a sense
of motion and passion. Wagner's oil paintings, inspired by years of studying the Masters including Hopper and van Gogh, capture the vitality of life.
His current exhibits focus on San Francisco cityscapes and
historic streetcars. "I am inspired by movement, strong color and candid interactions between people and their environment.
Capturing that one small moment in time that holds so much
emotion," says Wagner.
