Most recently, Getty reunited with his friend and mentor David Lynch to revive the much-anticipated Twin Peaks series for loyal fans worldwide.

In 2018, Balthazar will be introducing his animated alter ego BALT GETTY, opening up a creative space on Fairfax and launching two ventures related to his other love - fashion.<br>
