About the Artist

billynunezBilly Nuñez is a Caribbean born, Boston raised hybrid artist. His visual works infamously celebrate the female physique and hypnotism while simultaneously glorifying and embracing masculine strides of the past and future. In his late teens, Billy was heavily involved with Boston’s graffiti community creating a base for his palate, elaborate and purposeful. Nowadays unconstrained to any dimensions, Billy dabbles into a spectrum of mediums working alongside other creatives, using his intuition to take ideas from point A to B flawlessly. In 2014, Billy graduated from Pratt University where he obtained a BA in Graphic Design. At Pratt he was given the opportunity to be in a community of some of the most creative minds of this epoch all while perfecting his crafts. As the science fiction maven he is, Billy is currently working on an array of personal projects with hopes to share his philosophies and passionate universal views and predictions. Taking a closer look at Billy’s work is taking a closer look into the future. In the years to come Billy will bring to his cult-like audience an elaborate platform for the images they learned to love over the years.
