Bio

“Self portrait,” digital manipulation, 2003.

Will Felix was born in Brooklyn, NY in the eventful summer of 1969. His mother went into labor while watching Apollo 11 land 
on the moon, and headed for the hospital only to be sent back home. He was born 2 days later. This suggests either comfort in 
the womb, or rather a predilection for questioning the rules. 
This stubbornness with the conformity of human perception is prevalent in his varied works.

Will’s art career developed in Orlando, FL, where his work has been on display in several venues, including the Orlando Museum of Art and City Hall. Subsequent moves to New York City in 2000 and Akron, OH in 2004 have provided varied influences and venues for his career. He currently resides in Williamsburg, VA.
