Erik Wahl
Erik Wahl is an internationally recognized graffiti artist, author, and entrepreneur. His #1 best-selling business book, UNTHINK, has been hailed as THE blueprint for leveraging creativity in the corporate world. Pulling from his history as both a businessman and an artist, Erik's on-stage painting seamlessly becomes a metaphor for his message - encouraging organizations toward profitability through innovation and superior levels of performance.

Erik’s understanding of vision was originally born in the school of disappointment. After an eight-year career as a partner in a corporate firm, he became frustrated by the lack of innovative thought and corresponding profits he saw in business. So, he set out to challenge companies to change their way of thinking, while simultaneously pursuing his own individual passions. He rediscovered his love for art and now plays in the business world by working through his art.
