William has branded his Art and Design work as “Whimsical Funk”. What is Whimsical Funk? It’s William’s unique vision of another world created with a cathartic mind’s eye, it’s his ‘nom de plume’ coined in part by one of his collectors. His work combines multiple disciplines including graphic sensibilites, painterly techniques with a collage like assembly. William’s unique characters become the focal point of each work of art and are often surrounded by these techniques. His inspirations are life in general, music and artists such as Jean Michel Basquiat, Picassso, Francis Bacon, Ed “Big Daddy” Roth, Tim Burton, Dr. Seuss. William takes inspiration from multiple sources and throws it into his mind and it is filtered through his distorted lens providing the viewer with a new world.
