Erik Wahl's Biography

Erik Wahl is an internationally recognised graffiti artist, #1 best-selling author and entrepreneur.

Wahl 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. Wahl’s on-stage painting seamlessly becomes a visual metaphor to the core of his message, encouraging organisations 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; Wahl has even been featured as a TED presenter. The responses received have been nothing short of incredible, with standing ovations to prove it.

Wahl’s best-selling business book “UNTHINK” (2013) was hailed by Forbes magazine as THE blueprint to actionable creativity and by Fast Company magazine as Provocative with a Purpose. Wahl is also the author of “Unchain the Elephant: Reframe Your Thinking to Unleash Your Potential” (2014).

Wahl’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.

In the past 14 years, he has shared his incredible message with the largest and most influential companies in the world, leaving behind his prized artwork as a reminder of his passion for breakthrough thinking.
