Didier William’s (he/his) interweaving of painting and printmaking hovers between abstraction and figuration. Drawing from mythology and his Afro-Caribbean lineage and personal narrative, William’s ethereal images of bodies obscure race and gender through intricate patterns and ornamentation. He has mounted solo exhibitions at galleries including Galerie Schuster in Berlin, Anna Zorina Gallery and James Fuentes in New York, and M+B in Los Angeles. William’s past honors include a Joan Mitchell Foundation Painters & Sculptors Grant, a Rosenthal Family Foundation Award in Art from the American Academy of Arts and Letters, and three Hearts Foundation grants. He is an assistant professor of expanded print at Rutgers University’s Mason Gross School of the Arts. William earned an MFA in painting and printmaking from the Yale School of Art and a BFA in painting from the Maryland Institute College of Art.
