William Black is a contemporary artist currently based in Norwich, UK.
Ecology and urbanism have become key concepts to the practice of William Black. The environment, our relationship to nature, poverty and injustice, all become repeated themes that are in constant dialogue with the work in question. Painting is one discipline that has always interested the artist, being surrounded by nature and a certain natural cultural expression that young people often have the desire to partake in.
The films of Sergei Paradjinov and the books of Yasher Kemal become a form of internal dialogue that has influenced William Black and helped his creative process develop further. The artist has understood the responsibility of our social context (in relation to beauty and creativity) by gathering experience and by reflecting the direct transmission that he has so thankfully been given.
