Bill Stone studied painting & commercial art at Vesper George School of Art in Boston, MA. For 25 years, he worked as a creative director for a major international advertising agency in Chicago, which he used as inspiration in his painting. In 2004 Mr. Stone began exhibiting his work and can be found in many private collections around the country.
The highly emotionally charged paintings of Bill Stone are dense with feeling and passionate instinct. From his darkly charged figurative paintings to his vibrantly colored abstracts each piece evokes an emotional response from the observer. Mr. Stone’s work invites the viewer to become lost in a myriad of color, texture and movement while challenging one to interpret the big picture. Whether depicting violence or beauty each canvas seems to be created with it’s own distinctive intensity. Strong design and layers of thick paint create a sense of weight and elegance that only become more powerful upon viewing Bill Stone’s work in person.
