Michael Kelly Williams works in sculpture and fine art prints and also creates works on paper. His art is inspired by music, poetry, literature, nature, mythology and love. He draws heavily from world cultures, the art of the ancients, folk art, and African art. Concepts that interest him are the spiritual in art, environmental concerns, equality and justice, hierarchies collapsing, irony, and surrealism. He is motivated by his mentors, great teachers, and the belief in his own vision. He believes he has reached the point where his influences have percolated into something unique yet very much linked to art being produced throughout the African diaspora.
