About my work:
Jimmy “Black” Williams


Jimmy Black, a native of Birmingham, Ala., first gained notoriety as a fashion designer while living in Atlanta, Ga. There he designed clothing for many notable artists, such as Peabo Bryson, Arsenio Hall, and Steven Tyler of Aerosmith, who wore his designs on the 2nd annual MTV Music Awards. After a successful run as a designer he switched his focus to the Atlanta nightlife scene.

After several years of producing successful events for Club Velvet in Atlanta, propelling the venue to the #3 spot in Details and People Magazine annual hottest night club ranking, Jimmy turn his attention back to painting full time. Acrylic on canvas became his medium of choice with an emphasis on pop contemporary culture as inspiration. In 1998 Jimmy moved to New York to seek new challenges and to incorporate some of his life lesson into his art.

Jimmy’s artistic focus is the pop/commercial aesthetic expounded by Pearlstein, Lichtenstein and Peter Max. His use of pop/contemporary theory combined with psychedelic themes, highlighted by a vivid color palette allows him to create imagery based on fantasies derived from his childhood. Jimmy states” my passion for the urban Landscape inspires surreal images of faces, people, and cultural settings as symbols of humanity quest for a common bond. As people we are all he same, what makes us special is our inherent difference, and our ability to bridge those boundaries to form a common thread.”
