Statement

Bill Cormalis Jr. is a self taught artist out of Los Angeles Ca. Bill started drawing at an early age, everything from animals to Star Wars battle scenes. In his formidable years, being a skateboarder opened his eyes to an entirely different realm of creativity. With exposure from the pages of skate magazines, he began to experiment with painting, doing grip tape art, and making stencils. Growing up in a musical family, music is also a major influence, and subject in many of his artworks. The work of Picasso, Van Gogh, Stuart Davis, James Castle, Klee and Rembrandt, inspire the diverse nature of Bills work, from creating Collages and Assemblages, to painting Portraits. The use of Recycled items in Bills work is common.

In October 2008, Bill participated in the MusicShare Benefit, which raises money to aid musical artists in need. Notables such as, Shepard Fairey, Slash, Mark Mothersbaugh, Lemmy Kilmeister also had pieces in the show. He has shown at SK Visuals, Hangar 1018, The Grind Gallery, Infusions Gallery, The Light Gallery.
