With an art career spanning 25 years, nearly 300 of Billy’s works have been published, including recent works on Universal Studios titles (The Burbs and Battlestar Galactica) collector’s edition DVDs and U.S. playing cards. His “splatter art” technique is what’s getting attention these days, though. By dipping his fingers into the paint and flicking it onto the canvas, he’s able to capture his desired image without the use of brushes. This highly interactive art exudes a kinetic energy that engages the viewer while capturing fine portraits, architectural details and fantastical images.
