angela willcocks

I am a multidisciplinary artist whose practice is influenced by the community. My work visualizes and engages. Drawing and painting are the foundations of my work, yet each project is unique in medium and message. While living and working in Atlanta I specialized in sculpture and installation “Blind Video”, a video and braille Installation, and “Thraxpat”- a huge sculptural installation, High Museum of Art. For the last 10 years I have used my exploration of media and medium as a platform to establish a practice of collaboration and Public Art. I have created murals, installations, wall drawings and short, socially informative videos that are projected “guerrilla like” onto implicated spaces. Recently as a result of several NEA grants I collaborated with communities to create, inspire and place Art into many different environments, “Blotnbyte”,
Pasadena; :Barbershop animations”, Long Beach. I am a public artist with a social practice and a desire to create projects that better a community and inspire.
