Orange The Crown Act


Charcoal & Pastels
By Lloyd G. Wade


Lloyd Gregory Wade was born in Monroe, Louisiana in 1975, the second of four

children to Lloyd and Josephine B. Wade. In the mid 80s, Lloyd’s fifth grade teacher

(Ms. Dimmer) found that his notebook was full of cartoon drawings. Concerned and

impressed, she enrolled him into the Louisiana Gifted and Talented Arts Program. This

program would instill an otherwise shy child with the tools needed to be called an artist.

Lloyd has a Bachelor of Arts degree from Southern University A&M College in

Baton Rouge, LA. and a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the School of Art Institute of

Chicago in Chicago, Illinois.


His most influential tutelage was received from artist such as: Daryl Triplett,

Robert Cox, Addie Dawson- Euba and the late Afro-C.O.B.R.A. artist Dr. Murray

DePillars and late former Texas Southern University Dean of Fine Arts, Dr. John T.

Biggers. Lloyd describes himself as an artist story teller that is interested in showing the

value of people of color and their place in history. He strives to express the importance of

self-love and the respect of the black men and women. He loves to visually satisfy the

viewer with a kaleidoscope of colors, a variety of cultural symbols, patterns and artistic

aesthetics. Lloyd’s artwork spans several different mediums, styles, and varies in sizes.

Lloyd has also been an Art educator for thirteen years and currently holds the

position of Art Department Chair at Thurgood Marshall High School in Missouri City,

Texas. As an educator he is given the opportunity every day to share his gift and artistic

experiences with his students and staff. He expresses to his students that art is not a craft

but a discipline and self-expression in life.


A constant exhibitor, Lloyd has travels with his work near and far. No space has

been too small or too large for his work to come to life. He has exhibited in galleries and

venues from Chicago to Houston. An Educator by trade, but an Artist for life and a visual

creator for change.
