My eyes see more than the hand can record in a single day. But I integrate select pictorial elements to create unique visual stories, in which my environment, humanity, and technology are blended into a unit.
Most people know me as Billy Moro-Wey when my face is attached to it, whereas others know me by that name through my art. My art and I are soul mates and are inseparable. My artistic adventure started in Africa, grew in Europe and is expanding in America.
I am currently a practicing professional visual artist in New York City where I run two art studios. My specialties are painting oil on canvas, creating permanently glazed wall tile murals, producing experimental and traditional ceramic art pieces, and executing exciting portraits for clients by order.
I share my artistic experience with people as an art educator and exhibit my works around the world. Hundreds of my original works are in many homes and institutions. They are my small pieces of immortality, a testament of my being in more than one place at the same time.
I welcome challenges and love to participate in art contests and workshops. I have won scores of awards and prizes in my artistic career. Just like writers, there are lots of untold stories I’ll like to translate into visual forms. I am never tired of carrying out experiments in various art media just to satisfy my curiosity and creativity.
Creating art to me is happiness. Just like living things need food for their survival, my art is essential for my well-being and contentment.
