William Osorio was born in 1989. He attended the Fine Art Schools in his hometown Holguin, Cuba, studying sculpture and painting. In 2007, he stopped his academic studies and emigrated to the US. Settled in Boston, he began to explore with a wide range of media using collage, acrylic,oils ,and charcoal to create portraits that reference influential characters of popular culture. According to Osorio: "Human behavior and social issues within the realm of culture surrounding me influence my work''. Although Osorio has a touch of an academic background, he chooses not to follow a scholastic path, which has contributed to form the spontaneity and expression he aim to achieve with his artwork. Osorio's work has been exhibited in several group shows. William currently lives and works in Miami, Florida.
