This week’s “Artist of the Week” for Tampa Bay is Williem McWhorter – a local digital artist from Davenport, Florida.
Williem McWhorter – Digital Artist – Davenport, Florida
Digital artist, Williem McWhorter, is currently calling Davenport, Florida home. Williem comes to the “Artist of the Week” spot by taking first place in Fine Art America’s Tampa Bay Surrealism Artist contest with his work entitled “Seven” (the first picture of the slideshow displayed to the left). McWhorter was also selected 2010 Artist of the Month by Art Creation Magazine.
McWhorter’s creations are an interesting blend of his talent and the vision of his wife, Tami McWhorter.
Background on the artist
Originally from Miami, Florida, Williem’s love for art began in his early childhood years. He is a self-taught artist with skills in many mediums ranging from traditional oils to drawing to digital matte painting. After relocating to Seattle, Washington State he was employed in graphic art specialty advertising which re-kindled his love for art and began his journey into the technology field.
Williem’s worked blossomed when his wife, Tami, came to him with a vision of coffee as an entity transformed into the reality of our every day routines. Thus was born the first piece of digital art by the duo called ‘Decaffeinated’ which is now part of a 13 image series reflecting the vision of coffee intertwined with reality.
Williem and Tami have since relocated to the Orlando area where they continue to build their body of work together.
Williem’s piece entitled “Red Spike” is the feature photo at the top left of this article. The piece is boldly rich in color and composition. This is indicative of all of McWhorter’s work.
Red Spike is just one of the gorgeous pieces of art you will enjoy when you browse the artist’s gallery of works.
