Contemporary artist William Atkinson has been active in the art world for over a decade. Atkinson’s work first took the form of street art in Los Angeles, where he worked under the pseudonym ‘Insurgency Inc.’ As his artwork migrated into the gallery setting the artist began labeling the paintings with his given name, William Atkinson. While the artist continues to utilize elements from street art, such as symbolism and familiar imagery in artworks, his current work focuses predominantly on personal expression rather than an anonymous cultural critique.

Atkinson’s multi-media works combine imagery from his day-to-day life with imagery from pop culture and street art, which are assembled into collaged pieces. Atkinson applies dynamic brush strokes and lines in a gestural mode to contrast the graphic imagery and leaves his process gestures exposed and unedited, conveying the energy and authenticity of a single unfiltered expressive moment. The lack of shading, and inclusion of negative space allows for a focus on both form and symbolism. The diverse range of materials and source imagery and the artist’s re-contextualization of figures and text prompts viewers of various backgrounds to consider new paths and perspectives of critical thought.
