Will’s funky art is inspired by Kitsch Iconography, horror movies, the 60's Pop art revolution, and fabulous advertising and artists like Pierre et Gilles Will’s world is one of cheesy romance, love and compassion. Life’s a pizza, add your own topping…

”I do a lot of comic drawing for textbooks, so it influences my work, I’m also very influenced by Roy Lichtenstein, Andy Warhol, and other Pop Artists. I also create “photo comics”..

Images of kitsch” like Bollywood and religious Kitsch, statues of Mary, Jesus, Buddha and Hindu gods etc.drive me...
