About the Artist
Williams artistic talent was recognized early. At age 15, he realized that painting was what he would spend the rest of his life doing. He was truly fasinated by painting, and stayed long hours in his studio to polish his talent. He then launched his career as a commerical artist. His talent earned him numerous honors including three National Scholastic Awards, and a covetd ACT-SO Gold Metal. His debut print, "Taking Her Back," the first in a five-part series, pays homage to the beauty of black love with muted, natural tones and an emotionally charged scene. This piece conveys the respect and honor that the black man should hold for black women. "We are powerful people and there are certain messages I try to portray," says Williams. "I try to capture the elements of love." He reminisced about the 70s: The romanticism, music, culture and black folks making a statement. "I paint my music," he says, referring to Marvin Gaye, Earth Wind & Fire, and Maxwell. His paintings reflect the process of a relationship (a man meeting a woman, to magnificent love, to having a family).
