Behind the Gallery
A.W. (Andrew Williams)
Curator and Manager
Andrew is a young, innovative, self-taught digital artist with a creative purpose to increase the African American culture morale and to enhance the enjoyment and value of graphic art. Andrew found his niche in digital artistry when an inspiration of his complimented his hand painted canvas work by saying that the quality looked as if it was digitized and advised him to explore it. AW then explored the medium of graphic art and found it to be challenging at first but yet fulfilling experience while growing in his artistry.
AW also found an interest in ways to connect the African culture to the culture and traditions of African Americans. He often illustrates portraits of urban people and illuminate their eyes to create a startling effect to evoke a deeply rooted passionate emotion. He uses bold line work, ethic colors, and poetic graffiti to further express the strong emotions that he wishes to portray through the images and words.
AW debuted his curating skills with his first graphic group art show in Atlanta, GA in 2015 and since has been an invited artist in Miami's Art Basel with works shown at the Museo Vault Gallery, a featured photographer & creative artist in the magazine, Black Brides, and experience his first sold out solo show at the Bank OZK Arena.
AW and his long standing relationship with the Pyramid Gallery has awarded him the pleasure of selling over half of his body of work and became a donor to the foundation Cutwell for Kids! He continues to establish rapport with collectors and curators around the world which has enabled him to be repeatedly invited to participate in local art show & festivals and become an annual featured artist in the well known Atlanta show, Articulate in the Mason Fine Art Gallery.
