Wade Schaming was born in 1984 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. His sculptures are built through assemblage, allowing materials to remain unchanged from how they are found; they are used as is. This process gives new life to discarded and forgotten objects. He received his BA from the University of Pittsburgh and his MFA from the School of Visual Arts. Previous residencies include the Artist in the Marketplace (AIM) program, Vermont Studio Center, Residency 108, Keyholder Residency at the Lower East Side Printshop and Yaddo. Forthcoming residencies include the Emerging Artists Program at the Tofte Lake Center and The Edward F. Albee Foundation. He is currently an artist-in-residence at the Saltonstall Foundation for the Arts. He lives and works in New York City.
