Los Angeles artist Kent Williams is a well-known contemporary painter, famous for his dreamy canvases and bold realistic scenes.
Created with strong thick brushstrokes, Williams’ neo-expressionistic works depict worlds where reality fights dreams and surreal details exist to ease the cruel situations his subjects go through. Combining their complex mentalities with the nudity of their bodies, Williams tells the stories of his humans, which are often biographical or even autobiographical.
Their sensibilities and anxieties become the vanishing point for the artist, who seems to be recreating the outcomes of their stories, inviting the viewer to give the end he/she finds proper for these characters.
