Artist CV



Bio:

William Luz (b. 1984) is an artist working with drawing, ceramics, painting, print, and occasionally music. His works pull from a range of reference material collected over the years, which are abstracted, combined, and deconstructed to produce a personal visual history that is at once recognisable and new. Despite these transformations, his focus on colour, form, movement, and the use of unexpected materials maintain tangible connections to observation and everyday visual experience.

He is one third of Nous Vous, a group of artists & friends and is an associate lecturer on MA Illustration at London College of Communication.
