William Villalongo Bio

About The Artist

William Villalongo plays with deeply rooted art historical iconography by redefining racial and sexual politics in his compositions. The "Nymph" series rifts on Picasso's own "Desmoiselles" exchanging their tribal masks for icons of the Modernist era.  Villalongo reinforces the link and debt to the Art of Africa acknowledge by Picasso and his peers.  Villalongo was included in the recent inaugural exhibition of MOCA Cleveland, The Bearden Project at the Studio Museum Harlem and PS 1's Greater New York.
