William Villalongo, Tyler School of Art MFA 2001, "Outside My Name or Through Other Eyes" at UConn

Author: econover

  William Villalongo, Tyler School of Art MFA 2001 Outside My Name or Through Other Eyes "Outside My Name or Through Other Eyes, weaves the artist’s aesthetic and social interests together with aspects of Pablo Picasso and Aaron Douglas’s visual vocabulary. Villalongo’s paintings, collage works and prints draw upon the distinct illustrative style and political forcefulness employed by Douglas, a celebrated Harlem Renaissance artist. Also evident is the artist’s creative contextualization and reinterpretation of these Modernist Era Masters’ Formalist experiments, their love of African Art and use of black iconography. Villalongo’s art likewise references Picasso’s sexually charged Bather canvases and his once notorious painting, Les Demoiselles d’Avignon, from 1907." Read More
