Dee Williams grew up in Harlem with a family that encouraged his artistic
abilities and fostered an enthusiasm for all forms of cultural expression.
He began painting at an early age and won scholarships to the National
Academy of Fine Arts and Design in New York. There he studied classical
principles of painting. Ironically, it was the need to earn money to
buy paints and canvas that brought Williams his extensive credits in
both television and film. In 1988, he renewed his enthusiasm for painting
during an acting appearance in New York. Since 1991, he has had numerous
solo art exhibitions across America, and has donated paintings to the
National Portrait Gallery in Washington, DC and The Schomburg Museum
in New York. Williams calls his paintings abstract reality to express
the underlying principles behind them. He draws his subjects from life:
people he has met, situations he has lived, and sometimes characters
he doesn't know, but whose idiosyncratic appearance or behavior has
caught his eye.
