Didier William prefers the orientation of his work to be continually flexible—working horizontally, at ground level, or on a tabletop, walking around the object—until a painting is completed. William holds an MFA in painting from Yale University and a BFA in painting from the Maryland Institute College of Art. He was a recipient of the Toby Devan Lewis Fellowship in painting as well as the Morris Lewis Award for painting. He has exhibited paintings in group shows at Kravets Wehby Gallery in New York, Deitch Projects in Long Island City, Swann Galleries in New York, Galerie Schuster in Berlin, as well as traveling exhibitions in Baltimore, Kansas City, Philadelphia, and Greece. He was a 2012-2013 Artist in Residence at the Marie Walsh Sharpe Art Foundation’s Space Program in Brooklyn, NY. He is currently Visiting Assistant Professor of Art in the Department of Art and Art History at Vassar College in Poughkeepsie, NY, as well as Lecturer/Critic in the School of the Arts at Columbia University, New York. William currently lives and works in Brooklyn, NY.
