Willy Richardson received an MFA in painting from Pratt Institute in 2000.  He lived and worked in New York City for a decade, where he immersed himself in the international art scene.

Willy Bo Richardson’s painting combines architectural precision with abstracted flourishes rendered with a palette of many colors.  Listening to a wide array of music as he paints, his work captures the climactic essence of experiences that are fleeting – but which also last forever.

 In addition to exhibiting his work internationally, he maintains a standing position at Santa Fe University of Art & Design as a painting professor. He has shown along side a selection of modern and contemporary painters including Agnes Martin, Josef Albers, David Hockney, Hans Hofmann and Jackson Pollock at Jason McCoy Gallery, New York.

"Vertical strokes might resemble relics from a dream or histories without words—each color perhaps symbolic of a different emotion, radio station, or musical note.” Katy Crocker, arts editor of Adobe Airstream writes,  “In a synesthetic fashion, vibrating colors are like sounds, provoking movement. Transitions of color seem to indicate the passage of time.”
