WiLLiAm PoP ARTiST Portfolio


William Rivera is one of North America’s premier pop artists. His penchant for this art process began during the 1980s in Miami, Florida. The city’s hard-edged grittiness offset its beautiful vistas, and proved to be a natural paradox for the young artist. Rivera obtained a degree in commercial art, and soon his work made its way to galleries and private homes all over the world, including Canada, the UK, Australia, South America and Japan. Rivera’s paintings are a hit with many private collectors, the bulk of who have several of his pieces. His commissioned pieces, whether of pop culture icons or subjects of personal interest have afforded him many accolades and dedicated collectors.

The “William Pop Artist (Truly Inspired)” tag line evolved as Rivera becomes a moving force in the contemporary art world. The artist’s inspirations have proven to be in tune with ever-evolving cultures and trends and the twists and turns thereof. It’s almost as if Rivera has a looking glass into future pop culture trends, as well as a keen eye for the subtle and sublime icons of pop culture past. His silk screening, paintings and digital concepts leave an impression on viewers who are familiar with the subject and those for whom the paintings serve as an introduction to a new world of cultural explorations.

He has extensive knowledge of Photoshop, Illustrator and various other programs, he is no stranger to the Digital Concepts. Commercial art is the passion of his adult life and he willing to succeed by any means.

Also what more Truly Inspired about him he is deaf.
