Kent Williams is a highly acclaimed figurative painter whose work has been exhibited at the Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery in Washington, DC. His paintings also hang in the collections of notable entertainers and musicians like Robin Williams and Meg White.
Kent’s work weaves together intense narratives that examine human emotion and connection. The stories he tells through his paintings are elaborate, yet they explore issues we commonly struggle with in our daily lives.
Kent has extended his artistic explorations into other mediums, including graphic novels. He worked with Darren Aronofsky to create the graphic Novel, The Fountain (which you can read about here).
Here are a few more examples of Kent’s work.
