Foster Talge was born in Texas and graduated from UT with a degree in Mechanical Engineering. The bridge into the art world from the mechanical world came with designing clocks, which he turned into a very successful business, Tres Studios. His biggest challenge, to date, has been the Metal Tree Sculpture, which stands outside his studio off Cesar Chavez, at the ArtPost compound. After this monumental endeavor, Foster would like to do further large pieces. He enjoys the challenge and has the equipment to handle the job. He is also planning a new form of artistry, designing a series of patina metal paintings, created using difficult chemicals to create various effects.
