Artist Willis Washington

Willis Washington

New York


American b. 1963  —  Artfare artist Willis C. Washington, Jr. is an American born artist. Born too mixed parents in the 60’s which lead to a career in cosmetology as a hairstylist. Willis says, “that his unruly hair drew him to the hair business out of necessity.” Having a career in the beauty business brought a unique perspective to his practice. The bridge to art and painting from hair seemed to be a natural progression being that the skill of a hairstylist is visual just as art. His unique view of beauty can be seen in his work. Oil, watercolor, and acrylic painting are his material of choice. Using his travel, life, and love of all culture to express his artistry is his gift that is interpreted in a very fresh and innovative approach to his artwork. Along with having a Cosmetology License also has an Associates Liberal Arts degree and a Bachelor of Arts degree. ​
