"Why Superheroes? I was first attracted to the hero myth of comics as a child, but having an unhappy home life made me question the comic book and television world’s presentation of morality and normal life. Mad Magazine was the door opener. Their parody of Superman became my stepping-stone to questioning societal myths. I started as an underground cartoonist quickly moving to regular comics ending up and Mad Magazine doing as many comic hero satires as I could.

I came upon The 'Batman' street actor who modeled for both paintings (pictured) relaxing in a Hollywood alley with his 'Partner in Crime' who I dubbed 'Thuggy' Spiderman. They were annoyed I wanted to shoot them until I whipped out real cash. We took some great shots, but I wish I had taken more as one was arrested and shipped out of state and the other 'retired'." - William Wray

ABOUT William Wray:
William Wray has lived in California most of his life and studied painting at the Art Students League in New York.

Making his living as a cartoonist who specialized in painted subjects, he spent many years coalescing a eclectic array of art styles, ultimately finding his voice in a contemporized reflection of traditional California regional painting that focus on humble subject matter rarely considered as fine art.

Wray blends traditional skill sets of realism and the sheer energy of abstract expressionism in an ongoing evolution to find the balance between two seemingly unrelated styles. Wray has challenged himself to create a brand of realistic expressionism he hopes to use a bridge into the customarily circumspect contemporary art world.
