William T. Wiley uses current political and social issues to comment on life in our time. His stunning draftsmanship and freeform love of language are combined in paintings, drawings, prints, and sculpture. We are invited into a crazy, exciting, and thoughtful conversation with the artist about all that makes life interesting. With a wide and ranging knowledge of art history, Wiley sprinkles historical references throughout his work. His sensuous and accurate drawing evokes the Old Masters but when we discover the visual and verbal puns hidden throughout his prints and drawings we recognize a fellow inhabitant of the 20th century United States.
William T. Wiley has shown widely in solo and group exhibitions in the United States and the world. He is represented in the collections of The Museum of Modern Art, The Art Institute of Chicago, The Los Angeles County Museum, The Stedelijk van Abbe Museum in The Netherlands, and numerous others.
