Wade Schaming was born 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.
Wade received his BA from the University of Pittsburgh and his MFA from the School of Visual Arts. He has been selected for numerous residencies, including the Artist in the Marketplace (AIM) program, Vermont Studio Center, Lower East Side Printshop Keyholder Residency, and Yaddo. He lives and works in New York City.
