William Marvin

IL Artist of the Year 2018




William Marvin is a representational artist with a real appreciation for the design aspects of abstract art.  

By emphasizing strong shape relationships and connecting bands of textural color, he is able to paint the natural world in two-dimensional patterns while creating interesting three-dimensional compositions. He values the drama of a strong composition, solid drawing, complex textures, and sumptuous, rich color. His love of the outdoors shows through with his ability to capture the ever-changing light patterns that reveal nature’s often overlooked beauty.
