Williams, commonly known as WAK (his initials in reverse) is a self-taught artist who, as a child living in Chicago&rsquo;s South Side, became fascinated with painting. At the age of 15, he started working as an artist on Chicago&rsquo;s Historic East 87th Street Black Business District, drawing and painting images for clothing boutiques and hair salons. At 19, he became a cosmetology illustrator for Soft Sheen hair products which eventually led to a commission from Alberto Culver USA, to create &ldquo;Standing Appointment&rdquo; which depicts 4 women under hair <a href="http://www.avisca.com/category_s/2120.htm#">dryers</a>, for their Motions hair care line. Over the years he has developed a very refined figurative painting style that utilizes acrylic and sometimes airbrush techniques and he has also developed a large and loyal following since he entered the art print market with the release of his first reproduction of the print titled &ldquo;Taking her Back&rdquo;.</p>

<p>In addition to being arguably the top-selling artist in the Black print market, his inspirational, political, and romantic themed prints have been featured in numerous films and television shows including &ldquo;Law and Order&rdquo; and &ldquo;Soul Food&rdquo;. He has also been included in publications such as Essence and Upscale magazines.</p>

<p>He has enjoyed significant commissions including Motions, the hair-care company, and recently, the late actor Bernie Mac. Kevin Williams lives and works in the Atlanta area.</p>
