ART TODAY 09.15.17: Monolith, the painting and book by William Wray

by | Sep 15, 2017 | Art, Art Today, Books

Monolith 24×24
All works, oil on wood
Painting of a cement plant in Bakersfield and cover of my book Monolith. An older favorite as I first started to get more abstract.

According to Artweek.LA, “Wray’s works are not just paintings; they are chunks of the outside world transported onto canvas. It seems that for him, the rusted remains of our technology-driven world and the art-deco details of New York’s iconic skyline are modern day monoliths, as full of cultural significance as the standing stones of pre-Christian civilizations.”

Entire Acrostic will publish tomorrow

Special: Who or what holds a special place in your heart? How does this factor into your creative process?
My girl friend Sharon and my parrot Mookie. •Sharon is good at judging if a painting is any good. Mookie just distracts me.

Time: What is your all-time favorite piece of writing/art/music you’ve created?
I love making any good painting, but I think the Superhero’s are my strongest concept. My Writing would be my lurid oversized art comic: Happy Comics, a very dark humored one-shot book published by 3A.
