Oil on Canvas
Original Art Work
The world has suffered from one of the most devastating, indefinable, and highly unexpected surprises to mankind. Covid19 has been very brutal and merciless to our world and loved ones. Therefore, we are obliged to respect and obey simple preventive rules in order to avoid extermination like many have succumbed to. Remember that when there is life, there is hope. But you have to be strong, smart, watchful, respectful, helpful, and never give up even in the face of adversities. Love the world around you! Keep the required distancing from others whenever possible to do so, and don’t forget to wear your mask in public. Love yourself to love others.
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.
