Michael Kelly Williams was born in Neuilly-sur-Seine, France, and grew up in Detroit. His studio practice is currently based out of NYC, with his studio located in the Bronx. His work is inspired by music, poetry, literature, nature, mythology and love. He draws heavily from world cultures, the art of the ancients, folk art, and African art. Concepts that interest him are the spiritual in art, environmental concerns, equality and justice, hierarchies collapsing, irony, and surrealism. Williams is motivated by his mentors, great teachers, and the belief in his own vision. He believes he has reached the point where his influences have percolated into something unique, yet very much linked to the art that is being produced throughout the African diaspora.
