Artist: Will Bullas Title: Hippo Bowl Size: 19" x 13" Edition: Signed Open Edition Medium: Paper About the Artist: Will Bullas was born in Ohio and raised in the southwest. He has drawn and painted for as long as he can remember. Accordingly, he enrolled at Arizona State University to major in fine arts when he was drafted. In Vietnam, his skills stood him in good stead; his first professional pieces were pencil portraits of fellow soldiers which were sent to loved ones back home.
After returning from military duty he enrolled in the Brooks Institute of Fine Art in Santa Barbara CA, where he studied with renowned instructor Ray Strong. "He was not only a master of landscape painting," Bullas said, "but a master of color theory. And he could tell a great story, too." Bullas graduated with a degree in oil painting. With the encouragement of his wife, Claudia, he quit his printing press job (reproducing the work of other artists) and concentrated on his own art.
That was the beginning of a year-long voyage across the midwest and southwest, taking Will and Claudia to dozens of malls and parking lots where Bullas sold his work to many appreciative collectors. Will's exclusive relationship with galleries resulted in a decade of prosperity and a growing group of dedicated, enthusiastic collectors.
Bullas' work has not escaped the notice of critics and peers. He won the Strathmore Award at the 1981 Rocky Mountain National Watermedia Exhibition, the William G. Morrison Award for the Adirondacks Exhibition of American Watercolors, and the First Place Award for the 1990 Signature Membership Exhibition of the National Watercolor Society. Bullas also won a California Watercolor Association's Silver Medal and he is a proud member of both the American Watercolor Society and the National Watercolor Society.
