Erik Wahl is an internationally recognized graffiti artist, author, philathropist and entrepreneur, Erik redefines the term “keynote speaker.”

Pulling from his history as both a businessman and an artist, he has grown to become one of the most sought-after corporate speakers available today.  Erik’s on-stage painting seamlessly becomes a visual metaphor to the core of his message, encouraging organizations toward profitability through innovations and superior levels of performance.

His list of clients includes AT&T, Disney, London School of Business, Microsoft, FedEx, Exxon Mobil, Ernst & Young, and XPrize; Erik has even been featured as a TED presenter. The responses received have been nothing short of incredible, with standing ovations to prove it.

In 2011, Wahl created a 10,000 square-foot Mona Lisa in a desert near Los Angeles. The following year, he was selected by TED as a speaker for the TED2012: Full Spectrum series. Wahl wrote the book Unthink: Rediscover Your Creative Genius in 2013 which was named CEO Reads book of the year in 2013.[13]
