William DeBilzan has been exploring the Caribbean for close to thirty years and it remains his greatest source of inspiration. Often at the helm of his own yacht, the artist makes frequent trips to both populated and remote islands to immerse himself in the culture and natural beauty of the region. The people and waters of the Caribbean are DeBilzan’s most influential teacher, providing a continuous education on how to live a meaningful life full of love and laughter. Combining this knowledge with inspiration from Western artists like Mark Rothko and Richard Diebenkorn, DeBilzan deftly employs color, composition, and texture to capture his lifelong love of the Caribbean through the paintings in the “Tropical Series.” Click on a painting below to view details.
