Having played professional basketball in the Philippines for 15 years, art is something William never lost his passion for. As a child he painted regularly with his grandmother and began painting professionally during his 10th year of playing basketball in the Philippines.
During that time, William was commissioned to complete more than 80 paintings to hang in rooms within a resort. While he has strayed some from florals and ventured into a more abstract terrain, he continues to look to nature for inspiration.
“A lot of times I look at sunsets and I look at nature in general. Sometimes I’ll be walking down the street and I’ll see cracks in the road and that will introduce new ideas, As an abstract artist I want to come up with different ways to take ideas from nature and apply them to putting paint on canvas to create an effect. I’m not going out of my way to do anything different from anybody else. I’m just going with the flow.”
Layers of life, layers in art! Through my abstract visions I want to capture what I see in nature and life experiences. Combining the two using a multimedia palette. The sunny times to the storms! Breaking through the layers and creating new ones!
