You may have met William Suran. He's a talented Fiercely Curious painter who's been slowly churning out hours and hours of laboriously intricate layered watercolors. He has also received some stellar press lately and we're so glad that his dreamy work has been discovered and celebrated by the infamous Design Sponge - here!
Bill goes crazy for these peonies - we mean sleep deprived insanity to capture the essence of his subjects that he painstakingly photographs well into the wee hours of the morning:
"Currently, I make watercolors from photographs that I take of peonies. In May and June I don't sleep much as I shoot photos in my apartment after the sun goes down from 9 to 3am every evening."
Here's a peek into Bill's history:
William Suran was born in Chicago and attending the Kansas City Art Institute at age 18 where he studied painting, drawing and printmaking. Bill has had an avid interest in old dead guy paintings, drawings and prints since he was a kid and has spent a lot of time in museums.
You can find Bill's original works here: Fiercely Curious. (Or even better, come a studio visit to his lovely space in Greenpoint, Brooklyn).
Email us here: firstname.lastname@example.org - we'll take you there!
And Bill's prints (framed or unframed) can viewed in person and purchased at the lovely Dandelion Wine on 153 Franklin St. in Greenpoint, Brooklyn where they will be on view until the end of February!
Thanks, Dandelion Wine and Design Sponge for loving William Suran's work as much as we do!
