ABOUT THE ARTIST AND HIS WORK
Scott Williams is an artist based in New York City. His work is done exclusively from observation: all landscapes are executed on site, au plein air, from conception to completion, or with live models.
For the past few years chance operations have been used as a means of determining his subject matter.
As a teenager Scott Williams studied with California Surrealist Gordon Wagner, and later attended the Cleveland Institute of Art, where he was a student of Op Art master Julian Stanczak. He received a Masters degree from the University of California at Davis. There he studied with painter Wayne Thiebaud.
Scott Williams first began exhibiting his paintings while still in his teens. His work has been seen in numerous venues in New York City and across the U.S.
Williams teaches at City University of New York and at Pratt Institute.
