Artist Statement: “I make art.”
William Wright is a self taught artist, born and raised in England, currently living and working in Baltimore, MD, USA.
He was inspired at an early age by the large Henry Moore sculptures in London and a school trip to an exhibition of Salvador Dali at the Tate Gallery in 1980: “I liked that adults took such absurd things seriously.”
William paints in a variety of styles with fondness for surrealism, expressionism and bright colours.
William has suffered with depression and alcoholism, art is great therapy and distraction, he has been sober since 1997!
Winner of RAW BALTIMORE : BEST VISUAL ARTIST 2013, William has had work displayed at the prestigious Visionary Arts Museum in Baltimore.
