Willy is a visual artist who has decided to step back from the limelight of his former life to concentrate on his passion for art. He has now partnered with a new studio in London.
Having spent many years having a glamorous career, living the dream in London, LA and New York, Willy has decided to spend the next chapter his life creating art. His style is raw and some may say childish, that he makes no excuses for. Willy loves colour, playfulness and fun and wants these elements to shine out through his work. He believes that we are all born with a fantastic artistic imagination, but this is diluted by our upbringing, life experiences and our careers. Willy wants to make a point of exploring the childlike aspect within his unconscious mind.
Some of the 20th century artists that Willy is influenced by include Bridget Riley, Patrick Heron, Gerhard Richter, Peter Blake, Andy Warhol, Banksy and Terry Frost. Media that he likes to work with include Lenticular, Chromaluxe and fine art Giclee printing. Willy also believes his art should be framed to a very high standard and this is a vital part of presenting his work.
