I am a fan of William’s exuberant pieces that deftly reconfigure the confines of color, space and who’s explosive compositions seem to defy gravity. I have previewed his work before, so I was excited to learn he had been selected by Marx & Zavattero as their featured artist at VOLTA NY.
What’s unique about VOLTA NY from all the other art fairs going on in New York, is that is focuses on solo showings by a select handful of international artists. VOLTA NY was concieved by fair director Amanda Coulson who’s aim was to ”put the focus back on artists through exclusively featured solo projects… [thus creating] an opportunity for discoveries that move beyond those afforded by a traditional art fair. While many fairs provide a broader overview, with more represented artists in each booth, visitors to VOLTA NY compare the experience to a more focused series of intense studio visits.”

Congratulations on you success William!
